Gabriel Magee, vice president in Technology atJP Morgan Chase's London offices, plunged to his death Tuesday from the banking giant's riverfront skyscraper in London, reports from British news outlets say.

Magee, who had received favorable work reviews and an annual bonus, fell from the 33-story tower in the city's Canary Wharf section and was found on a roof belonging to the widening base of the building nine stories up, according to The London Daily Mail.

Scotland Yard was reportedly called to the scene about 8 a.m. local time. Detectives are not treating the death as suspicious, London media reports.

How is this in any way Bitcoin related, and why the red text?

Agreed, not sure what relevance this has to Bitcoin at all, apart from that he worked in technology...perhaps?

The only thing I can think of is that JP Morgan was just refused a copyright for their version of bitcoin. Maybe this guy that jumped was part of that program. I think they applied like 800 times and was rejected every time.. Im just spitballing, other than that, I see no connection..

i feel this story is a counterpart to the other topic about the first bitcoin suicide. purely to show that bitcoin does not cause death. but money, in any form causes death..

Bitcoin truely is a banker owners worse nightmare.

Who owns banks?

Countries and very few people.

Having all that power to see it soon fade away can trigger extreme depression.
