With the latest revelation that a body discovered in North-east London
is that of a banker intimately connected with the Enron fraud case, one has
to begin to ask why are there so many "unexplained" deaths linked
to this case?
The BBC is reporting
that London Police are treating the death of Neil Coulbeck, who worked for the
Royal Bank of Scotland until 2004, as "unexplained".
Coulbeck had been interviewed by the FBI as a potential witness. The fraud
case centres on a NatWest transaction under which it sold off part of its Enron
Three other Natwest bankers wanted by the US for involvement in the fraud are
from the UK under laws designed for cases of terrorism that were passed after
Is this becoming a case of too many "unexplained deaths" spoil a
good cover up?
In 2002 Enron
vice chairman J. Clifford Baxter was found shot to death in his Mercedes
Benz in the early hours of Friday morning, January 25, near his home in Sugar
Land. The death was officially reported as a suicide, yet Local Justice of the
Peace Jim Richard initially declared that Baxter died of a self-inflicted gunshot
wound but then reversed himself, citing the intense public interest in the death.
There were many suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, including the
moving of evidence and tampering with the body prior to the immediate investigation
at the scene.
The experts found several things highly unusual. First the peculiar ammunition:
not regular bullets but something called "rat-shot".
Rat shot is a type of ammunition that cannot be easily traced back to the weapon
that fired it. It is used specifically for firing at snakes or small pests and
is not found readily.
Furthermore, according to the New York Times, an unnamed associate added that
Baxter “was talking about perhaps needing a bodyguard" just days
before his "suicide".
The case remained open for months after the death.
Why would a very successful businessman one day be talking about needing someone
to guard his life and then the next day decide to end it?
Enron Vice President Sherron Watkins, who warned top company officials that
the energy trading giant might “implode in a wave of accounting scandals,”
feared for her own life during the crisis that culminated in Enron’s
filing for bankruptcy.
Then of course there is the timely death by heart attack of Enron Founder Ken
Lay earlier this month. Lay was facing a lengthy jail sentence for conspiracy
and fraud. His death has erupted a firestorm of rumours. Even the Miami
Herald is questioning whether Lay has faked his own death.
Some have intimated
that Lay's death, whether it be natural, faked or terminated, will ensure that
his convictions be erased, leaving his family fortunes and assets untainted
Other Enron executives and witnesses involved in the case have gone on record
as saying they are "scared
to death" of being intimately caught up in the case.
