Madoff, Morgan, Mass Mutual, Melissa Millan and the O-So-Mysterious Banker Deaths

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Melissa Millan, Executive Vice President of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co (“MassMutual,”) was stabbed to death on November 20th. This raised more than a few eyebrows as Ms. Millan had management responsibility for MassMutual’s business selling life insurance to banks who collect on the policy if the insured executive dies.

As a result of more than a few reports of sudden and unexpected banker deaths this year, the notion that a bank would be protecting its fraudulent operations by offing an executive and then collecting on his or her life insurance policy – thus making it good business to “shred documents” by profitably shredding bankers is unnerving to contemplate. Yet, contemplate we must.
