Below, I re-blogged the list of sudden death financial executives from http://i-uv.com/anonymous-posted-an-astonishing-list-of-dead-bankers/
Then I read the source to verify: http://projectcamelotportal.com/blog/31-kerrys-blog/2356-list-of-dead-bankers-and-growing
Ok, Kerry Cassidy I want to discover if any pranks were inserted into the dead bankers’ list (and related family of the bankers).
For several years I have followed this trend of Banking Criminality.
What was first reported in the aware and social media years ago of monetary system fraud, then bankers leaving in huge numbers, and now it is a fatal exodus as they are suddenly and unexpectedly dying.
I was very suspicious because of the sheer numbers, as a hand-full could be plausible, but these numbers are too staggering and needs a well funded investigation with the ability to retrieve documents and affidavits from executives, government officials, and wherever the money trail and other evidence leads.
However after making the time to lookup the individual reports over many regions on Earth I do think several are within the “average” sudden death expectation of contemporary life expectancy.
Perhaps some could “possibly” be the result of a “white Hat” organization, or perhaps some are part of the criminality within the international banking cartel to insure the “dead tell no tales” and to silence those willing to tell the truth.
Obviously the financial sector is a seedy industry and leveraged money is a dangerous career infested with sociopaths, and money laundering (loan sharks) banks with links to espionage agents, drug cartels, fraud, corruption, political campaign funds, and other criminality…
Also obvious is the case of suicide by “seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head”, not a believable suicide and more likely a murder.
William K. Black wrote the book: The Best Way To Rob A Bank Is To Own One; and there are many other books and reports about the criminality in the financial industry from Wall Street, NY to London, to Hong Kong, and beyond.
Below is my effort, by no means exhaustive, in the tedious task of referencing news reports to at least read if all the executives or family were reported as sudden deaths. I do not think this was intended as a prank or hoax, and I do think the list is too sensational and could be considerably shortened and downplayed with fewer cases that only include the truly suspicious deaths.
My findings are added in RED to not be confused with the original text. ~Ron

..”Anonymous posted an astonishing list of dead bankers If you had any doubts about the dead banker meme, take a look at this list and how these people died. Simply stunning . . . . .
Though this list is not sourced to anything other than Anonymous, (and therefore could be a spoof) it looks convincing and could be easily cross checked. I have not done that because in this case “easy” would take several hours to cross confirm out with a list this big and there is something big going on today that is eating my time. There is a thread about this on the Forum and perhaps someone there has the time to dig this list.

3. July 2014– Julian Knott, 45, JPMorgan Executive Director,Global Tier 3 Network Operations, SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT WOUND
[wallstreetonparade.com: Making worldwide news last week was the violent deaths of JPMorgan technology executive Julian Knott and his wife, Alita, ages 45 and 47, respectively, in Jefferson Township, New Jersey. However, two other recent, sudden deaths of technology workers at JPMorgan have gone unreported by the media.
The bodies of the Knott couple, who have a teenage daughter and two teenage sons, were discovered by police on July 6, 2014 at approximately 1:12 a.m. According to a press release issued by the Morris County Prosecutor’s office, Jefferson Township Police Officers Tim Hecht and Dave Wroblewski responded to the Knott home located in the Lake Hopatcong section following a “report of two unconscious adults.”
Who made the call to police and whether the children were home at the time has not been announced by the police or the prosecutor’s office. After a preliminary investigation, the police announced on July 8 that they believe Julian Knott shot his wife repeatedly and then took his own life with the same gun.
Friends and colleagues say Julian Knott was a kind and thoughtful individual. The idea that he would orphan his three teenage children, leaving them with the memory of the brutal murder of their mother at the hands of a father they loved and trusted, is causing shock and disbelief among relatives and friends in the U.K.

Police are investigating whether a wealthy banker whose plane crashed in the English Channel faked his own death.
Sascha Schornstein, 36, has not been seen since his single-engine small aircraft came down off the coast of Kent.
Investigators pulled a small amount of wreckage from the sea but have found no trace of the financier’s body.
They declined to reveal the results of checks on his bank accounts, credit cards and mobile phones that could indicate if he is still alive.
Yesterday, his wife Yulia, 28, appealed for up to £30,000 to help her solve the mystery of his disappearance.
She said her German husband, who worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland, was a methodical and careful man and she cannot understand what happened. ]

I took special note of the last one – he died drinking antifreeze in an attempt to “get high”! Funny one that is, as if a banker would be stupid enough to try that. The list is shocking, I never saw so many suicides and car accidents. No gall bladder stones, cancer deaths, strokes, or simply falling ill, it is just a littany of action. That pretty much says it all.” UNQUOTE
