LONDON May 20 JP Morgan technology expert
Gabriel Magee, who fell to his death from the U.S. bank's tower
in London's Canary Wharf financial district, killed himself, an
inquest concluded on Tuesday.
"I am wholly satisfied that Gabriel jumped off the 32nd
floor with the intention of killing himself," senior coroner
Mary Hassell said in her conclusion.
Although unable to look at the reasons behind the jump she
said it was clear that work performance issues he had previously
faced were consequences of personal troubles.
She said she would not be making any recommendations as to
how either this or future deaths might be prevented.
"There's nothing useful to say to anyone that might prevent
loss of life in future," she said.
Magee, 39, a vice president with JP Morgan's
corporate and investment bank technology arm, plunged from the
building in January, hitting a lower, 9th-floor roof where he
was pronounced dead at the scene.
The inquest heard written evidence from a senior
toxicologist that Magee, from the United States, was found to
have had an alcohol level nearly three times the legal driving
