The son of Jon Corzine was found dead in Mexico City of an apparent suicide. Jon Corzine was the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, head of MF Global, and Governor of New Jersey, as well as being a long time campaign financier for President Barack Obama.
The son of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine killed himself in a Mexico City hotel, sources told The Post on Thursday.
Jeffrey Corzine, 31, was the youngest of Corzine’s three children with ex-wife and childhood sweetheart Joanne Corzine.
While little is known about the circumstances behind Jeffrey Corzine’s alleged suicide, his death comes on the heels of at least eight unusual banker deaths, many of which were also labeled as suicides despite the near impossibility of one of them being attributed to suicide by nail gun.
Jeffrey’s father, Jon Corzine, is a banking insider who has controlled many top levels of the financial system, and has been intimately involved in both politics and central banking for decades. In November of 2011, the former head of Goldman Sachs was involved in a highly controversial commodities scandal in which he re-hypothicated customer accounts to act as collateral for several big bets involving Greek bonds and other toxic assets. His actions led to MF Global’s bankruptcy, and the loss of over $1 billion to MF Global customers. However, his political ties to the Obama Administration helped him avoid several criminal charges tied to fraud and theft.
While the death of a family member to one of America’s most powerful banking insiders could very well be a simple case of depression and suicide, the fact that his death comes at a time when several others involved in the U.S. banking system are dying of similar consequences increases the possibility that Jeffrey Corzine’s death may be part of a greater and mysterious conspiracy.
