There has been another said death of a "banker" to add to a growing, and growingly perplexing, list, this time of Canadian Murray Abbot, an investment advisor for Morgan Stanley. (These two articles were shared by Ms. K.F., and Mr. C.S., to whom goes our gratitude);
Missing Morgan Stanley trader found dead in Lake Ontario near Toronto’s Beaches

Murray Abbott, Missing Morgan Stanley Trader, Dies at 36

There are some oddities to note here, not the least being that the Financial Post article of May 12, reference Bloomberg as the source of its story, and in the Bloomberg article itself, which is dated May 11, one day before. In the May 11th article, we read the following:

His death wasn’t suspicious, Mark Pugash, a Toronto Police Service spokesman, said Tuesday in a telephone interview. “It was obviously a very tragic missing person’s case."

The death is not suspicious, merely "a very tragic missing person's case." Yet, a day later, this appears to have been tacitly retracted by the second article;

"Police are awaiting an autopsy before determining the cause of death of Abbott, who went missing two weeks ago, Detective Constable Neil Thornton said in a telephone interview Monday."

One might wonder what caused this subtle change, but perhaps it was careful consideration of the fact that the unfortunate Mr. Abbot was missing for approximately two weeks before being found. Presumably, if he had somehow fallen into Lake Ontario and drowned early on in the two week period, he would most likely have been found much sooner than he was. While Lake Ontario is a big place, big enough to lose a body in, it is also a busy place. This might suggest that he met his end prior to ending up in Lake Ontario, and thus, an autopsy might lead to conclusions that his death was something other than "a very tragic missing person's case."

Well... maybe...

But if it was not just another "very tragic missing person's case," then what might it be? There's a pattern that Mr. Abbot fits, and it's here:

Abbott was a vice president and one of 16 people on the institutional equities desk at Morgan Stanley’s Canadian wealth-management division. He joined the New York-based bank in 2010, following jobs at Toronto-based brokerage Blackmont Capital Inc. and Research Capital Corp.

“He was larger than life, a very gregarious guy, very well liked by clients,” Laura Adams, head of Morgan Stanley’s Canadian equity-distribution business, said Tuesday in a telephone interview. “He was just a super guy.”

Abbott’s clients included mutual funds, pension plans, hedge funds and banks, according to Adams, who hired Abbott and was his manager.

“Clients really enjoyed working with him, he was well liked and had a very strong network across Bay Street,” Adams said. “He just worked really hard and had a great work ethic.”

One part of that pattern fits many of the other strange bankers' deaths that we have blogged about on this website, namely, Mr. Abbot was a respected co-worker, very professional, and well-liked, and, apparently, a very moral and ethical man. This pattern we have seen before, as mystified family and friends are at a loss to explain why their loved ones would commit "suicide"(or rather, as we suspect in many cases, have been suicided). This factor is, I submit, an important one in whatever pattern may be emerging in these suspicious deaths, for it connotes invididuals who, if they were to encounter data or activities in conflict with their principles, might be constrained to report it or otherwise bring it to the attention of authorities, either within their own corporate structures, or within their respective national governments.

And here Mr. Abbot fits yet another pattern that seems to be repeated in these deaths, namely, he was in a position to encounter such data and/or activities in the first place. In this respect, Mr. Abbot had access to data concerning "institutional equities, mutual funds, pension plans, hedge funds, and banks." This conglomeration would have put him into a position to see, perhaps, aggregate financial activity of a suspicious nature. In this, he joins a growing list of suspicious deaths that would seem to indicate that someone, somewhere, is trying to conceal something. The question is, what?

Here my "high octane speculation" differs somewhat with that of others who have covered these stories, in that I do not think these banker deaths have anything to do with scenarios of "immanent collapse" of the western financial system. At least, not in the conventional sense. Rather, I think they might have everything to do with people who might have discovered significant evidence for the existence of what I have called a "hidden system of finance," one put into place after World War Two to fund both massive and long term covert operations projects, and massive and long term black projects research projects. Additionally, one might assume that in uncovering evidence of such a system, people in the position of Mr. Abbot might have gained peculiar insight into the actual day-to-day detailed functioning of such a system. As such, they would pose a threat not only to that system, but to national security, if they threatened to expose it.  But even  here one is left with something of a mystery: why go to all the trouble of murdering so many bankers under such increasingly suspicious circumstances, thereby drawing further attention to something that one would presumably want to keep entirely out of the public's eye? Why not simply "threaten" or "warn" such people into silence? Unless, of course, they already had been so warned.

In the end, we are left with more questions than answers, but, as the list grows, the pattern outlined above becomes clearer, with each addition confirming its broad outlines. And with the mention, in Mr. Abbot's case, of institutional equities and hedge funds, the possibility of my "high octane speculation" being perhaps the motivation behind these deaths would seem to have been ratcheted up considerably.

See you on the flip side...

    “Fraud has been outsourced to computers” ( ) as Keiser remarks. And “resources” (i.e. human beings) are getting junked like an old piece of machinery, and sometimes actually “deleted” like outdated software…

    So tragic to have lost (and may continue to lose) so many brilliant minds and influential people! This is outrageous.

    Well it seems this mysterious SVD plague has also hit astronomers and astrophysicists for a while. Who said a little knowledge was dangerous, the danger growth curve seems to project accordingly a sinister shadow on the one of more knowledge, contrary to the old saying.

    For those of you paying attention to the new Forex scandal where a bunch of global banks were caught fixing interest rates, Libor 2. When that story broke, Joseph and the Daily Bell pointed out that the entire thing was a sham. Of course, high octane speculation but it all made sense to me. The elite reigning controls just as a bunch of banking pawns were left hanging in the wind (sacrificial lambs) and some indictments were issued. Now, we will likely see the elite run some more bankers under the bus with the Forex scandal. This represents a movement of power being taken away from the banks as the next move to the global currency.

    What gets me is that nobody has gone to jail over these murders, in other words none have been solved. Now if they are “hits”, then who has “hit squads”?, I don’t believe the banks would have them, but the three letter agencies would definitely have them. Not all police departments are dumb, they solve murders every day, AND PEOPLE GO TO JAIL.
    Also you’d think that one police force would pick up the phone and call another police force to see if any of these murders had similar motifs. I’m just wondering IF these police departments have been “warned off”???

  6. marcos toledo on May 25, 2015 at 10:41 am

    Shades of Titus Oates popish plots Gail. But with the less than transparent deaths of Popes Pius XI and John 1 I wouldn’t bet on the safety of anyone. Who ever is ordering these hits must have even murder inc cowering in fear for their lives. What did this latest bank officer know and when did he know and how much did he know that lead to his fatal dip in lake Ontario.

    It’s as though they find a “Red Pill” subject / event and then become one of the scores of PTB victims that succumb to SVD.. “SUDDEN VIOLENT DEATH”. The SVD phenom was epidemic in both Kennedy assassinations, expanded wildly in the Bush and Clinton years, got even worse for 911 and exploded again before our Iraq invasion. A few years ago, I believe it was bio chemical researchers started dropping like flies and now we have bankers and those that report on the financial institutions suffering from SVD.. A good statistical analysis should be done of these SVD events. I’m sure the odds would boggle the mind.

    • loisg on May 25, 2015 at 10:12 am

      That’s interesting, I hadn’t considered these events in the context of previous occurrences of this phenomena. That could broaden the implications of this activity considerably, just how deep does the rabbit hole go? And for me, that alters who it is that could be the ultimate players involved.

      • Vader_Etro on May 25, 2015 at 4:37 pm

        Sigh … I’ve believed, mistakenly it would seem, that the cognition of “these events in the context of previous occurrences” was an item in the Giza BOM Sheet.

        And so when, on May 10, 2015 at 6:16 am, WalkingDead asked, “How many geneticists have been dying under mysterious or questionable circumstances world wide lately?”, I thought it was a question showing some acumen for THE ‘Hot Potato’ issue that will trigger near future occurrences and, therefore, something to watch for (but hope against).

    • Joseph P. Farrell on May 25, 2015 at 10:19 am

      I think you’re on to something Aridzonan… I remember the biochemistry deaths, the deaths of physicists, JFK witnesses, and so on.

        “Coincidental” deaths may actually have been a common event in areas like the economy, polity, culture, etc. for a long time, but now we have a global, real-time information network to both identify the connected events/situations and communicate those patterns. For example, David McGowan’s Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon (2015) identifies the astoundingly high number of late-’60s folk-to-country-rock stars who popped up in Laurel Canyon from homes where either Dad was in a US-military/intelligence-related job or from an elite bloodline (like David Crosby, who had both). I’m not a mathematician, but the odds of so *many* of those folks coming together at just the right time and place, with almost identical backgrounds? The odds have got to be astronomical (gee, I wonder where THAT saying came from?).
        Also, I imagine The Church knows about a lot of natural/unnatural patterns the rest of us are unaware of (including those financial-planetary trends you talked about a while ago, Joseph).

      Playboy had an article about the witnesses deaths and had a professor doing the math on its odds. It was off the charts. Indeed, this “system” mimics biology, in it’s determination to survive at all costs; be they hidden and/or exponentially astronomical[the more spent for survival in energies, the more brutal its defences]. And it also looks like having any kind of conscious or even an iota of morals is tantamount a death sentence and/or choice of seppuku.
      Are these Bankers or Biologists or someone else, with the ability to compromise the security of this breakaway? system; taking the red pill, and “acting” upon it? Tripping some tell-tale trip-wire[s]? Sounds an alarm? Goes to a higher member of the pyramid structure to sign his or her death warrant by telling all to the trusted institutional representative?

      • Robert Barricklow on May 25, 2015 at 6:28 pm

        Perhaps it will take a modern day Bannister, who stole the Golden Fleece, to turn pirate.
        It was nearly unheard of for a transatlantic captain, especially one as well regarded and trusted as Bannister, to “go on the account”, as it was said of pirating. Even in Port Royal, a haven of pirates, where everything happened, few had ever seen anything like it.
        Perhaps they fear a pirate, like themselves, doing a 180!

  10. moxie on May 25, 2015 at 7:29 am

    The big players are in on the poker game, just that nobody has blurted out this hidden system, atleast not yet. Though it’s being implied between the lines.

  11. Gail on May 25, 2015 at 5:44 am

    All these banker deaths look like and smell like Mafia murders and have “The Godfather”written all over them. I strongly suspect that the root of the “hidden system of finance” is the Vatican. The Vatican bank in recent years has also come under severe scrutiny. If the Vatican wants to own and control the planet, which it does, then the first port of call is to control the money and the gold, which I believe it does, and hides behind all the central banks and the skirts of Rothchild and Rockerfeller who answer to the Pope. I strongly suspect that all these bankers who have died have followed the paper trail and as the saying goes… all roads lead to Rome!
