New details have emerged surrounding the mysterious death of Autumn Radtke, the American CEO of Singapore-based bitcoin exchange firm First Meta.

Earlier reports said that Miss Radtke was found dead in her Singapore apartment on Friday, but a neighbor who wished to remain anonymous told the New York Post that the 28-year-old plunged to her death from an 25-story apartment building near her home at about 7 a.m. last Wednesday.

Police reported that the young CEO was found outside the building and was declared dead by paramedics. Her death has now been classified as a case of unnatural death, the Post reported.

“We had a wake at her house on Friday,” the neighbor said. “She was one of those ‘up and down’ types, by all accounts. She was often on her front step until 4 to 5 a.m. talking to California most nights of the week.”

Miss Radtke moved to Singapore to work for First Meta in 2012 and formerly worked in Los Angeles with Apple and other tech firms in the area developing digital payment systems.

Law-enforcement officials are waiting for Miss Radtke’s toxicology reports. Her death brings the number of questionable financial-sector deaths this year to eight.
