    Head Of Communications... Scandal-Ridden Banca Monte Paschi Has Committed Suicide

    Head Of Communications At Italy's Scandal-Ridden Banca Monte Paschi Has Committed Suicide

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/06/2013 16:23 -0500





    It has been several weeks since the name Monte Paschi, likely the most bailed out Italian bank in history, not to mention the oldest bank in the world, graced these pages: with the Italian elections now over and BMPS' political utility as leverage against Italy's Democratic Party finished, we expected that the next time we would read, and write, about it would be the next time it would need a bailout (its fourth in the past four years) sometime in the next 3 to 6 months. Sadly, Monte Paschi is squarely back on the front page following news moments ago that David Rossi, the head of communications at the bank, committed suicide by jumping off the building.

    From La Repubblica:


    David Rossi, head of communication of Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, was killed this evening by jumping from one office to the headquarters of the institute in Rocca Salimbeni. Rossi, 51, was the longtime collaborator of the former Number 1 at Monte Paschi, Giuseppe Mussari. Rossi had been raided ten days ago in the investigation on Monte but was not investigated. On the spot, in addition to the police, it's 118, but the relief effort was useless.
    While we have no knowledge of what personal, or professional, matters may have plagued the young man shown in the picture, if this terminal act of desperation is in fact related to the ongoing inquiry against the bank, then it is very likely that things in Italy are about to get very ugly very fast once more.
    We will provide more details on this tragic act as we get them.

    He probably shot himself in the back of the head twice as he was falling just to be certain.

    so much for the suicide claim

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016...e-re-examined/

    The mysterious death of an executive who worked for the world's oldest bank is to be re-examined after Italian prosecutors ordered that his body be exhumed.

    David Rossi, who was the head of communications for Monte dei Paschi di Siena bank, which was founded in 1472, died after falling - or being pushed - from a third floor window of the bank's headquarters in a 14th century palazzo in the Tuscan city of Siena.

    His death in March 2013 came at a time when the bank was pushed close to the brink of collapse over a scandal involving the loss of hundreds of millions of euros through risky investments.

    An initial post-mortem found that Mr Rossi, 51, had killed himself, but his family strongly suspect that he was murdered because he knew too much about the bank’s shady financial deals.

    Prosecutors in Siena, where the bank is based, have ordered his body to be exhumed and for the trajectory of his fall to be simulated, in an attempt to discover exactly how he died.

    The exhumation is likely to take place next month.

    His family say there were several suspicious elements to the death.

    Mr Rossi fell from his office at around 8pm on March 6, 2013, and landed in a darkened alleyway but did not die immediately – he was alive for 22 minutes, investigators believe.

    Security camera footage showed one or two shadowy figures appear at the end of the alley, apparently checking that there was no chance he would survive.


    The bank executive had bruises and scratches on his arms and wrists which suggested that he may have been gripped forcibly by one or two assailants before being pushed out of the window.

    On the back of his head was a deep, L-shaped gash which indicated that he may have been hit with a blunt object before falling from the window.

    Three apparent suicide notes were found crumpled in a bin in his study, but Antonella Tognazzi, his widow, said they contained phrases that her husband would never have used.

    One of them said: “Ciao, Toni, my love. I’m sorry.”

    “He never called me Toni, he always called me Antonella,” his widow said.

    A handwriting expert who analysed the notes said they seemed to have been written under duress.

    Another unexplained element is the fact that 33 minutes after Mr Rossi fell from his office window, a call was made on his mobile phone.

    At exactly the same moment, the CCTV footage showed an object falling onto the ground and landing a few feet from the body; it was later found to be Mr Rossi’s watch, minus the strap.

    “We’ve been waiting a long time for the investigation to be reopened,” said Ms Tognazzi.

    “It’s what we had been hoping for – it’s an important sign on the part of the judiciary. I have never believed he committed suicide.”

    another one taken out

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...910_story.html

    Retired World Bank economist, 83, found slain in upscale Va. neighborhood

    A woman went downstairs to investigate and found her 83-year-old husband with several gunshot wounds, police said. Johan De Leede was rushed to a hospital and later died of his injuries.

    “We have no credible evidence or leads at this point. It’s a true mystery,” said Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin C. Roessler Jr. “This truly is a case where we need input from the community. We want to hear about any suspicious activity.”

    Tim Rizer, who lives near the De Leede home, said he awoke about 1:30 a.m. to the sound of police helicopters above the neighborhood of million-dollar homes that rarely sees any crime. The community — near where former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina lives — jealously guards its serenity.
