(Crain's) -- An S&P 500 futures trader died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound just hours after losing several million dollars Wednesday, one of Wall Street's most volatile days.
Joseph Anthony Luizzi, 44, of Oak Brook, died in west suburban Berwyn, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office. He left a note.
"He explained to his wife that he had made a substantial loss and was despondent that he could never regain that loss," said Berwyn Police Chief William Kushner.
