WALTER BUCZYNSKI appeared to have it all - a loving family, lucrative mortgage business and a sprawling house on a cul de sac.
Then it all slipped away.
Over the past few years, the federal government filed several tax liens against Buczynski, an executive vice president at Fieldstone Mortgage Co.
By 2006, he owed more than $656,000 in back taxes.
Fieldstone went bankrupt last November in light of the subprime lending collapse and laid off most of its employees.
Earlier this week, the company requested in court to pay $1.1 million in bonuses to the few remaining staffers and executives, including Buczynski.
But Buczynski didn’t stick around for the payout.
Instead, he wrote a horrifying conclusion to a modern tale of corporate excess and failure.
Police said Buczynski, 59, murdered his wife, Marci, 37, in their Marlton, N.J., home yesterday and then jumped to his death off the Delaware Memorial Bridge.

While it can’t be said the killing is a direct result of the US mortgage crash, it is a disturbing phenomenon seen in Japan after the crash there and will be seen here in Ireland over the next 24 months.
