I'm sure this has absolutely nothing to do with LIBOR

'Stressed' Bank of England official stabbed self to death
A Bank of England manager stabbed himself to death due to the over-whelming pressure he was under at work, an inquest has heard.

The body of Christopher Dymond, 52, was discovered in a secluded car park in Herongate, Essex, after his family had reported him missing.

A post-mortem revealed Mr Dymond died from self-inflicted stab wounds to his chest and cuts to his arms.

His grieving father, Denis Dymond, told an inquest: "Our over-arching point of view is that Chris's death came about because of intense anxiety which was work-related.

"He was let down in the duty of care by his employers."

The father-of-three had been reported missing by his concerned family at around 10.30pm on April 21 this year after they were unable to contact him.

Police launched a full-scale search and discovered the body early the following morning four miles from the family home in a car park at Herongate Athletic Football Club.

A note was found addressed to his wife, Sharon, with whom he lived at the family's home in Shenfield, Essex.

Coroner Mrs Caroline Beasley-Murray said there were no suspicious circumstances and recorded a verdict of suicide at an inquest held in Chelmsford, Essex.

She said: "It is patently clear from what Mr Dymond expressed in the note that he was suffering extreme anxiety about work-related matters."

Mr Dymond is believed to have been heavily involved in the transfer of responsibility and power for bank regulation from the Financial Services Authority to the Bank of England in the weeks leading up to his death in his role managing IT services.

His colleagues at the Bank of England released a tribute at the time of his death saying: "Chris Dymond was a highly valued colleague to all those that worked with him.

"He was extremely well known and a popular member of staff. He will be very much missed here at the bank. Our sympathies and thoughts are with his family at this difficult time."

What an odd way to commit suicide. Multiple stab wounds and cuts to the arms? Aweful.

No LIBOR issues were on the radar in April

think we were all waiting for a mushroom cloud over the Greek banking system

And easy to jump to conclusions about the reasons why.

Do patterns of three and one letter dropped ever occur -
