It’s already well known that in the 1960s and ‘70s a slew of mysterious deaths occurred in the wake of the JFK assassination. These 100-plus deaths have been chronicled by such investigative journalists as Jim Marrs in his 1989 book Crossfire: The Plot that Killed Kennedy (see the section entitled “Convenient Death”), a revised and updated edition of which was recently published by Basic Books. (To purchase a copy of Crossfire, click HERE.)
In the 1980s, two decades after the 11/28/63 murder of 22-year-old actress Karyn Kupcinet (the first of the “convenient deaths” tied to the JFK assassination—leaving aside, of course, the 11/22/63 assassination of Dallas police officer J. D. Tippit and the 11/24/63 ritual sacrifice of Lee Harvey Oswald himself ), another enigmatic necrology suddenly emerged when numerous scientists connected to the Strategic Defense Initiative died or committed suicide under suspicious circumstances. Jim Keith provides a comprehensive list of these deaths—some of which are quite bizarre indeed, such as the case of Arshad Sharif, a computer analyst and programmer employed by Marconi Defense Systems who wrapped a rope around a tree, the other end around his neck, then drove off in his car at high speed, cutting off his own head—in Chapter Seven of his 1994 book, Casebook on Alternative 3. (Oddly enough, Jim Keith died only five years after the publication of the aforementioned book during a routine stay in a Nevada hospital after undergoing surgery for a relatively minor knee injury that he sustained while attending the 1999 Burning Man Festival).
In the second decade of the 21st century, a new—and perhaps even more Machiavellian—pattern has now formed, this one involving the premature deaths of prominent bankers.

For a far more elegiac outlook on these tragic events, however, click HERE to read Jon Rappoport's outstanding new poem "Look Over Your Shoulder, Banker Man." Rappoport's brief but chilling poem succeeds in exposing the dark heart of this grisly business better than any factual newspaper account could ever hope to accomplish.
