the plot thickens - really

News came out today that wealthy money manager, R. Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet, was found dead in his Madison Avenue office. Mr. de la Villehuchet's company, Access International Advisors, suffered billions in losses as a result of the Bernard Madoff ponzi scheme that came to light last week. Police officials termed the death a suicide.

Security officers discovered de la Villehuchet's body in a chair with one of his legs laying across his desk. A police department representative reported that his wrists and his left bicep were slashed and that a wastebasket had been placed under his left arm to catch the blood.

Read that description again. Picture that scene in your mind. Does that sound even remotely like the manner of death that a despondent billionaire would inflict upon himself? That slashed bicep alone would have required a superhuman ability to tolerate self-inflicted pain, not exactly the mark of a pampered international financier. Somebody is cleaning evidence and eliminating witnesses. This entire story stinks like a fish market on a hot afternoon and this is only the tip of this particular iceberg.
