American CEO of bitcoin exchange firm dies in suspected suicide

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, March 5, 2014

A 28-year-old American CEO of a bitcoin exchange firm in Singapore was found dead in her apartment last week, and local media are calling it a suicide.

Singapore officials are waiting for toxicology test results to determine exactly what killed First Meta CEO Autumn Radtke.

Douglas Abrams, the company's director and non-executive chairman told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday that he was "informed by the Singapore police about her death. The cause of death is still under investigation."

Radtke moved to Singapore in 2012 and formerly worked in Los Angeles with Apple and other tech firms developing digital payment systems.

Her death brings the number of questionable financial-sector deaths this year to eight, the New York Post reported.
