Someone Was Found Dead In A Conference Room On Apple’s Campus, Potentially A Suicide
Somewhat disturbing news coming out of Cupertino, Ca., where Apple maintains one of its larger business campuses.
According to the sheriff’s dispatch call there was a female employee involved in an argument on the campus, and had sustained a head wound — possibly from a gun — before Apple security escorted her out of the building.
As deputies were responding, they were unclear if there were multiple people involved. One portion of the dispatch exchange describes a body being found in a conference room, and that person had a gun.
It’s increasingly looking like there were 2 people involved since the fatality was reportedly an Hispanic male … and we know the person with the head wound was a woman.
Apple’s stock plummeted overnight, more than 7% — crushing the company’s value by more than $40 billion.
Earlier reports indicated that a body was found inside a conference room, and details were still emerging with relation to the person’s identity and the cause of death.
Obviously at this point, there is only speculation as to what exactly came into play in the death, and whether it was natural causes at work or something else.
Mashable reported earlier that their inquiries to a spokesperson within the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office have not yet been responded to.
We will update this story as more details become available, and can only hope no foul play was actually involved.
