American Bitcoin Exchange CEO Autumn Radtke Found Dead

On Thursday, police in Singapore said that the death of a bitcoin exchange CEO did not appear to be suspicious.
Autumn Radtke, a 28-year-old American living in Singapore, was found dead outside her apartment building on Feb 26. Radtke was the CEO of bitcoin exchange First Meta. Police have classified Radtke’s death as “unnatural,” suggesting that they suspect it resulted from an accident or suicide, the Associated Press notes.
In a statement, First Meta expressed shock and sadness over Radtke’s death.
Radtke’s death comes as bitcoin, a virtual currency traded via online exchanges, has been battered by news of the collapse of the prominent Mt. Gox exchange, which has filed for bankruptcy protection, claiming that it lost more than $400 million worth of bitcoins.
