The ugly rash of financial services executive suicides appears to have spread once again. Following the jumping deaths of 2 London bankers and a former-Fed economist in the US, The Denver Post reports Richard Talley, founder and CEO of American Title, was found dead in his home from self-inflicted wounds – from a nail-gun. Talley’s company was under investigation from insurance regulators.

Via The Denver Post,

 Richard Talley, 57, and the company he founded in 2001 were under investigation by state insurance regulators at the time of his death late Tuesday, an agency spokesman confirmed Thursday.

It was unclear how long the investigation had been ongoing or its primary focus.

A coroner’s spokeswoman Thursday said Talley was found in his garage by a family member who called authorities. They said Talley died from seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head.

Also unclear is whether Talley’s suicide was related to the investigation by the Colorado Division of Insurance, which regulates title companies.


Seven or eight self inflicted nail gun shots? Did he start with the body shots or the head shots?

  1. No doubt most of these people did not get into the high positions with a company by being a weenie, one would think they possessed all the characteristics we would collectively refer to as making them “tough”.
    So why do these people kill themselves? Loss of wealth and the accompanying loss of prestige or social standing in the elite community as they see it?

    Obviously they think all this is worth more than their soul.
