The former Silicon Valley whiz-kid jumped from a nearby 25-story apartment building about 7 a.m. last Wednesday, according to a neighbor.
Police reported that Radtke was found lying motionless outside the building and was declared dead by paramedics. Her death has now been classified as a case of unnatural death.
Initial reports had Radtke’s body being found in her apartment. Singapore officials try to downplay suicides since the city-state hit an all-time high of 487 deaths in 2012.

  2. Bitcoin, arch-enemy of JP Morgan. Hmm...add this to your list of mysterious banker deaths...

  3. How tragic. It's sad that there are people making light of it.
