Months back, and nearly every week it seemed, bankers were dropping dead under extremely suspicious circumstances. These were no tellers, either. These were managing directors and executive directors; men that earned top dollars and made the big decisions in financial institutions from Asia, Europe, and North America. Each death — from repeated staple gun shots to the temple and chest to two bullets in the back of the head — was instantly ruled a suicide the same day the body was discovered. These clearly weren’t suicides. This was, and is, an obvious conspiracy of large proportions. It was like 2014 would see a few from Goldman Sachs or JP Morgan each month up until about August. There were literally dozens. But then it stopped; or so we thought.
Today the New York Post has released word that the trend hasn’t gone out of style yet, it just took a break. Number 48 was killed this week:
“A Citigroup banker was found dead with his throat slashed in the bathtub of his swanky downtown apartment, authorities said Wednesday.”
Wouldn’t you know it? This guy was a managing director too — managing director of environmental and social risk management, to be exact — with deep ties to the World Bank through his specialization in emerging markets for its arm involved in loaning to the private sector, The International Finance Corporation. His name was Shawn D. Miller. Once again he was a young man — 42 — and described as “well liked.”
According to his profile on LinkdIn, Mr. Miller was no slouch, picking up multiple awards throughout his career as an executive banker:
“Mr. Miller has been at the center of the movement to lead the banking industry to responsible and sustainable practices in project finance, and corporate and investment banking activities.”
As there was no knife at the scene the police were unable to rule this one a suicide, which, judging by the dozens of banker deaths this year ruled self inflicted, may very well have been the plan. All that can be done now is speculate, but Shawn D. Miller was the man who oversaw and reviewed “investment projects in the extractive industries (mining, oil and gas)…” for the IFC “in numerous countries ranging from Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey to Uganda, Tanzania, Togo and Bangladesh,” making it entirely possible he came across some activities that could get some people into trouble. Everyone one of those industries Miller was a superstar in — oil, gas, mining, infrastructure, power, cement, renewable energy — are cutthroat industries run by criminal killers, not to mention banking, and competition could have come to dismantle the hero of Citibank’s capital markets. Whatever happened, he didn’t slip into the bathtub while juggling knives because the murder weapon wasn’t there, so somebody needed him gone and saw to it.
A slit throat is obvious foul play, but there is another strange twist to this tale. Miller was found in his million dollar Manhattan apartment — 120 Greenwich Street — by the building’s doorman, not long after he was dead. Why would his doorman go into his apartment? The press has no answer for this:
“It was unclear why the doorman checked his apartment.”
As these stories die as quick as they’re sparsely reported it’s unlikely any further developments will come of this case, but we’ll keep our ears to the grindstone and bring you any further information we can on the Miller case and the others as we receive it.
