Russell Investments chief economist Mike Dueker’s apparent suicide death, discovered Thursday after the 50-year-old former St. Louis Federal Reserve officer had been reported missing from his home in Tacoma, Washington, became the fourth such loss in the financial community in the span of a week.

Russia Today made the connection earlier this week:

A 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, William Broeksmit, was found dead on January 26 in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London.

The next day, January 27, Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, 51, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok. Police said he could have committed suicide. Mr. Slym was staying on the 22nd floor with his wife, and was attending a board meeting in the Thai capital.

Another tragic incident occurred on January 28, when a 39-year-old Gabriel Magee, a JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of its European headquarters in London.

Dueker, who was reportedly having unspecified issues on the job, had worked for Russell Investments since 2008. Previously, he published several papers on monetary policy and was an assistant vice president at the St. Louis Fed.
