Banker's family determined to find reason for death fall


The devastated family of a JP Morgan executive who plunged to his death from the roof of the bank’s European headquarters in Canary Wharf Tuesday said they were determined to 'get to the truth' about what happened.

Gabriel Magee, 39, fell 500ft from the top of the skyscraper shortly after 8am Tuesday.

The London Evening Standard reports that the American citizen had been working for the US investment bank in London for more than six years and was said to be in a happy and stable long-term relationship with his girlfriend.

Magee’s parents told the newspaper that they had been left distraught by their son’s death and would come to London looking for answers.

Speaking from their home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Mrs Magee, 74, sobbed uncontrollably as she said: 'I’ve lost my baby. We are shattered beyond words'.

The Daily Mail has reported that senior colleagues were last night investigating Magee’s recent workload as rumours swirled around the City over what may have prompted his death.
