Banker Suicide: Manager of Secondary Marketing Stabs Herself to Death
December 22nd, 2008

Keep in mind that secondary marketing refers to the securitization and selling of mortgage backed securities.

So, Kristy Hunt resigned her position as the secondary market manager for Community Bank & Trust’s mortgage department, and a few days later she stabbed herself to death with a small kitchen knife?

Oh sure.

An autopsy of Joplin banker Kristy Hunt has revealed she died of self-inflicted wounds, the Joplin Police Department said Thursday.

Hunt, 49, reportedly worked as secondary market manager for Community Bank & Trust’s mortgage department at the bank’s 414 E. 32nd St. location in Joplin, before resigning late last week.

According to police, Hunt’s adult children found her after 3 p.m. Tuesday, lying unconscious on the floor of her home on South Michigan Avenue. Hunt died a few hours later at St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Joplin. Joplin police initially investigated the case as a suspicious death and requested assistance from the Tri-State Major Case Squad.

Hunt’s body was sent to the Boone County medical examiner, who determined that Hunt’s wounds were self-inflicted, police said. Police say that Hunt inflicted several wounds to her body with a small kitchen knife found beside her on the floor.

“Based on the results of the autopsy and the Tri-State Major Case Squad (investigation), the Jasper County coroner is going to rule the death a suicide,” said Joplin Police Cpl. Chuck Neiss.

Hunt was pictured in a Nov. 19, 2007, Springfield Business Journal and Joplin Tri-State Business publication honoring Community Bank & Trust as one of the Best Places to Work in southwest Missouri.

Neiss said police did not release information regarding Hunt’s employment. A CBT employee authorized to speak to the media on the matter was unavailable Friday morning.
