SUICIDED? Missouri Auditor, Governor Hopeful Dies Of “Self-Inflicted Gunshot”

By  |  0 Comments



Over the past year, there had been a perplexing spike in suicide events involving bankers, especially those of Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan. Overnight, the first prominent public sector suicide shook the state of Missouri when its state auditor Tom Schweich died in St. Louis in what is said to be an apparent suicide, at the age of 54, around 9:48 am on Thursday, when Clayton Police Chief Kevin Murphy said paramedics responded to an emergency call from his home. Schweich was then taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead from a single gunshot wound.

The Police chief was quoted by Kansascity.com, who said that “What we know at this point suggests an apparent suicide.”

As reported by the local newspaper, Murphy declined to say if authorities found a note or any communication from Schweich. He said family members are cooperating with the investigation. He would not disclose specifics about the weapon involved in the shooting or where Schweich was wounded. At least one family member — believed to be Schweich’s wife — was at home at the time of the incident.

On the surface nothing strange, yet what is peculiar about the suicide theory is that as further reported, “Schweich began the day by calling The Associated Press and St. Louis Post-Dispatch to invite reporters to his home in the St. Louis suburb of Clayton for a 2:30 p.m. interview. He apparently called both news organizations minutes before the 911 call was placed from his home.”

Needless to say, a strange sequence of events for a person who was just preparing to take his life just minutes later.
