Posted on 03/12/2014 4:57:25 PM PDT by Nachum
A Manhattan trader was killed Tuesday morning by a speeding Long Island Rail Road commuter train, marking at least the seventh suicide of a financial professional this year.
Edmund (Eddie) Reilly, 47, a trader at Midtowns Vertical Group, jumped in front of an LIRR train at 6 a.m. near the Syosset train station.
He was declared dead at the scene.
Reillys identity was confirmed by Salvatore Arena, an LIRR spokesperson, who said an investigation into the incident was continuing.
Passengers on the west-bound express train told MTA investigators they saw a man standing by the tracks before he jumped in front of the train, Arena said.
Eddie was a great guy, Rob Schaffer, a managing director at Vertical, told The Post in an email. We are very upset and he will be deeply missed.
The divorced father of three had rented a house around the corner from his ex-wife, Michelle Reilly, in East Norwich, NY.

He was declared dead at the scene.”
And for half a mile thereafter.
Seriously, condolences to those he left behind.
Clearly a confused individual...
Obviously belonged in their “Horizontal” Group.
Someone comfortable in the “Vertical” Group would have jumped.
dead banker ping
Things that make you go, “hmmmmmm”.
That’s pretty funny.
It’s raining traders.

I do not believe that all of these men committed suicide and neither do a lot of people in the banking industry, there is more to this picture. There is something else going on, and a lot of them were J P Morgan employees. Fishy at best.
Maybe he got off at Willoughby.
What the hell do these people know?
What else would you expect from a bankster?
Probably made a lot of other people late for work while they cleaned and cleaned up his mess.
It sounds as this killing spree is based on the novel “Someone is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe” by Nan and Ivan Lyons. That led to a comedy movie back in 1978. Will deceased finance big wigs be as amusing to present audiences?
This kind of vaguely parallels the Japanese horror movie Suicide Club (2001).
Almost all are very violent deaths. It would almost make you assume someone is having them killed.
If it is one, it is a tradgedy. If it is 10, somebody is making them jump.
The fact he was a banker is incidental, in my humble opinion.
My computer couldn't find the Intel Hub; the server is apparently down.
And the answer is... Hand molders.
Um... What is an occupation least expected to see ranked 8th on a list of suicide by occupations, Alex?
What’s normal? Is this a reporting abnormality or a real banking suicide abnormality?
Hopefully none of the affected commuters missed a critical appointment.
I spent a good part of my career as a broker for a large broker in NYC....horrible business, I knew when I was 35-40 it was a young man’s game and once you hit late 40s you were a dinosaur and they look for reasons to fire you. Horrible, Horrible way to make a living.
