Ryan Henry Crane, 37, executive director in JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s (JPM) global program trading, died Feb. 10.

Details of the Stamford, Conn., native’s death have not been disclosed. He is survived by his wife, son and parents.

Crane’s death comes after a rash of suicides among three prominent bankers over the course of a week at the end of January and start of February, as well as the questionable suicide of a real estate finance executive said to have killed himself by shooting himself with a nail gun “seven or eight times.”

HousingWire first reported Feb. 1 that three prominent bankers were found dead in apparent suicides spanning the course of just six days.

Since then, details emerged about the work of the three that suggests at least a passing commonality – that is, the institutions they worked for were all connected to investigations in the United States or the United Kingdom for various types of fraud or misconduct.

Former Federal Reserve economist Mike Dueker, 50, was found dead in an apparent suicide near Tacoma, Washington on Jan. 31. Dueker was chief economist at Russell Investments.

On Jan. 26, William Broeksmit, 58, a former senior manager for Deutsche Bank, was found hanging in his home, also an apparent suicide.

On Jan. 28, Gabriel Magee, 39, vice president at JPMorgan’s London headquarters, apparently jumped to his death from a building in the Canary Wharf area.

The Metropolitan Police in London have opened up an investogation into Magee's death, which is something they only do when they don't find enough evidence for a death to be ruled a suicide.
