A 28-year old Manhattan investment banker has died after an apparent suicide, police sources said.
Kenneth Bellando, who worked at Levy Capital since January, was found dead on the sidewalk outside his East Side building on March 12, after allegedly jumping from the sixth-story roof, sources said.
Bellando, a former investment bank analyst at JPMorgan, is the son of John Bellando, chief operating officer and chief financial officer at Condé Nast. His brother, John, a top Chief Investment Officer with JPMorgan, works on risk exposure valuations.

Why is Obama killing off bankers?
Is jumping from the sixth floor to commit suicide really that smart? It could end up just being excruciatingly painful, and be quite embarrassing, to boot.
And if he’s not we need to know why they are committing suicide.
Re sixth floor: He was being conservative, probably more conservative than in his investment practices.
Maybe he thought he could fly.
Obama is just a hired hand, all he’s doing is reading whatever is on the teleprompter and taking vacations.
The best explanation for all these bankers who have somehow lost the will to live I’ve heard is from Douglas J Hagmann who was on Coast-to-Coast a few nights ago. He says it has to do with the end of the US dollar as a reserve currency and the subsequent looting of America’s remaining wealth.
We need to start some banker suicide jokes.
What do you get when you cross a Banker a Bhuddist Monk and a can of Gasoline?
There are certain drugs (some hallucinogenic mushrooms) which cause an urge to jump to one’s death. I can’t remember the specifics because it’s been a long time since I read about.
There was a monty python bit about bankers jumping from windows....very dark and funny.
No, it’s because they are mad at God and don’t see any other way out of this torturous life. The worst part is that they were tricked by evil into thinking suicide is a legitimate way out.
Just like my grandparents had told me about during the Depression. If you were already scraping by you found a way to make do and carry on. Those who had become accustomed to the good life could not bear the thought of going back to the bottom of the ladder.
“There are certain drugs (some hallucinogenic mushrooms) which cause an urge to jump to ones death. I cant remember the specifics because its been a long time since I read about.”
Been a longer time since I did that. ;-)
I report this not without a certain empathy for the sentiments of the singer.
...to my shame, I must admit.
Does anyone really think these were all actual suicides? How about Richard Talley, 57 founder and CEO of American Title? Talley reportedly died on Feb 6 from seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head.
Yup, most severe case of “suicide” I ever heard of.
I agree, that is not a suicide
You really do have to admire his commitment and determination.
