Yesterday, Jim Willie updated SD readers on the recent rash of bankster suicides.
The number of bankers found dead in the past week continues to mount, as The Denver Post reports that the founder and CEO of American Title, Richard Talley (currently under investigation by insurance regulators) has been found dead in his home from self-inflicted wounds…from a nail-gun.
Yes, you read that correctly. Authorities are stating that Talley shot himself multiple times with a nail gun.
As The Denver Post reports, local authorities are calling the case an apparent suicide:
The founder and CEO of American Title Services in Centennial was found dead in his home this week, the result of self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun, according to the Arapahoe County coroner.
Richard Talley, 57, and the company he founded in 2001 were under investigation by state insurance regulators at the time of his death late Tuesday, an agency spokesman confirmed Thursday.
Apparently, Talley was able to shoot himself in the torso and the head 8 times with the nail gun:
A coroner’s spokeswoman Thursday said Talley was found in his garage by a family member who called authorities. They said Talley died from seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head.
Also unclear is whether Talley’s suicide was related to the investigation by the Colorado Division of Insurance, which regulates title companies.
Before coming to Colorado, Talley was a former regional financial officer at Drexel Burnham Lambert in Chicago, where he met his wife, Cheryl, a vice president at the company. The two married in 1989.
