Richard TalleyYesterday, 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.

Just what might Richard Talley have been on the verge of revealing to authorities?

Jim Willie’s alert on the sudden rash of banker suicides can be read in its entirety here.



  1. He committed suicide by shooting himself 8 times.  I wonder if he had to reload.  Law enforcement is one big fat joke.  No wonder they call them pigs.  Do you ever watch cops?  I saw an episode where this one stinking pig busted some skanky hooker for a beer can crack pipe. Bankers and pigs are the same breed. 

  2. I don’t know if I would stick this guy (Richard Talley) in the same group as a typical “banker”. He doesn’t seem to be related in any way to the other banker deaths in the past week. As far as I can tell his company sold title insurance, which apparently just makes sure a home seller does not have any debts that can be transferred to the home buyer. The company seems to be fairly small and based in Colorado. When I think of an evil banker, I imagine Goldman, BoA, etc. executives trading paper crap on Wall St. I think this may be an unrelated story that was attached to the other deaths in an effort to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Having said that, a nail gun suicide? Seriously? Wow.

  3. Title companies are set up to protect the title of property  They are also set up to keep title problems secret  Some of the biggest scams come from title companies that are uncapitalized, deceitful, incompetent or can provide a paper trail to the banks, mortgage brokers and processors who engaged in wholesale fraud.  Robosigning at B of A was responsible for hundreds of billions to maybe trillions of fraudently signed AND recorded mortgages.  Title companies would have been complicit in this fraud.   thus the criminal investigation into American Title. 
    I’ve seen title and escrow companies fully engaged in fraud with the owners going to jail for theft.  It is very easy to steal to your heards content when everyone, and I mean everyone, trusts the neutral third party.  Same goes for Notaries  and other gate keepers.  Corruption from top to bottom in this is my best guess.  The nail guy recipient probably knew to  much
    As for forensic examiners and coroners are human. Just the mere suggestion that they have the option of standing vertically over the table or on the table can be pretty compelling.

  4. More Guess what ifs? The banker deaths and the german gold missing is all coming to a head an come to the same ending road at the end. That is my guess here what is happening. The ultimate conspiracy here. The  governments around the world are getting there gold taken from then an are being replaced with paper form gold and silver. The NWO bank is holding all the real gold an silver. All this gold china is buying is just getting laundard there an they are giving them credits in the 100 paper to 1 real ounce of pm. Then these governments sell there paper pms cash them out slowing an keeping the price down. And these bankers some are not agreeing to this since the comex is running on silver an gold fumes. And believe the coming comex default will run out of metals.

    • Why not, @MaryB?  Vince Foster managed to shoot himself in the back of his head when he “committed suicide” in a park in DC several years ago.  He even got rid of the gun after he was dead.  Now, is that talent or what?
