Senior Citi Banker Found Dead In Bathtub With Slashed Throat

The dust has barely settled on the latest high profile banker suicide in which Deutsche Bank's associate general counsel, and former SEC regulator, Charlie Gambino was found dead, having hung himself by the neck from a stairway banister, and here comes the latest sad entrant in the dead banker chronicles of 2014 when earlier today, the Post reports, a Citigroup banker was found dead with his throat slashed in the bathtub "of his swanky downtown apartment, authorities said Wednesday."


Shawn D. Miller, Citigroup’s managing director of environmental and social risk management, was discovered around 3 p.m. Tuesday by a doorman in the Greenwich Street building, law enforcement sources said. “We are deeply saddened by this news and our thoughts are with Shawn’s family at this time,” said a statement sent out by Citigroup.

Bloomberg adds that "a 42-year-old man was found unconscious yesterday in the bathtub of his Greenwich Street apartment in lower Manhattan with a neck laceration and later pronounced dead, the New York Police Department said in a statement."

Medics declared him dead after responding to an emergency call about 3:11 p.m. and an investigation to determine the cause of death is continuing, police said.


Miller advised executives and clients on sustainability matters, including environmental and social policies related to industries including mining and renewable energy, according to his LinkedIn profile. He helped oversee the development and implementation of policies in more than 100 countries.


“We are deeply saddened by this news and our thoughts are with Shawn’s family at this time,” Danielle Romero-Apsilos, a spokeswoman for the New York-based bank, told Bloomberg an e-mailed statement.

However, unlike previous more "clearcut" suicides, this time there may have been foul play: the Post adds that "there was no knife recovered at the scene, leading officials to suspect the death was not a suicide, and they were trying to determine who had access to his apartment."

Miller did well: "one-bedroom apartments at the building are listed at more than $1 million."

An online profile under the man’s name calls him a “pioneer in sustainable finance” and a specialist in emerging markets at the International Finance Corp., part of the World Bank. Several former colleagues told The Post that Miller was well-liked.

It was unclear why the doorman checked his apartment.

Meh, another dead banker, fuck em!

I stepped in dog shit during lunch and fucked up my new kicks, that's of more concern to me than if every banker on Earth got a colombian necktie.

""there was no knife recovered at the scene, leading officials to suspect the death was not a suicide,"

Don't most people who slash their own throats hide the knife...?

Thank you Santa, for an early black friday gift.  Imagine a world without banksters. Even the air would smell better.

Don't look at me.  I only use a nail gun.

If they didn't find a knife, he must have used a sharp icicle.  They often melt before the cops arrive.

If he would've been in London he would've been safe, they're banning knives there.....

tall buildings for one

It's called Schroedinger's knife...the Quantum Suicide Experience

I'll bet he hid the knife, after he slit his own throat. Very determined case of suicide. Case closed.

blindman's picture

no mention of a near
window or search thereby.
this new generation is
amazingly adept at concealing
suicidal intentions and acts,
maybe for the insurance
payout to their hookers?

UGrev's picture

He wasn't missed.. I'm pretty sure that since he can smile from the neck that they got'em..

All these "Bankster Bonuses" going around, we might see a few of them start talking and making deals....

If we could only find some non corrupt law enforcement types to take down the statements...


OOOOPPS, bad career choice dude.  Sucks to be dead.

if only.

even george h.w. bush who, eulogizing gerald ford, laughed when he mentioned oswald as the lone assassin, at least put near a thousand crooked bankers in jail in the much smaller savings and loan scandals in the '80's.

The important thing is that no nailguns were harmed in the making of this farce.
