Dead body found at Apple Headquarters


A person has been found dead in a conference room at Apple headquarters in Northern California, and police were investigating, local media reported on Wednesday.

The East Bay Times newspaper reported that an emergency call was made at 8:35 a.m. from Apple’s campus in Cupertino and that the victim, who had suffered a head wound, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Local television station KTVU said investigators from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office were en route to the scene.

Reuters could not confirm the report, and Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“According to the sheriff’s dispatch call there was a female employee involved in an argument on the campus — and she was being escorted out by security when she sustained a head wound … possibly from a gunshot.

As deputies were responded, 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.”

Apple has more than 10,000 employees in Cupertino, though most work in satellite offices outside of Infinite Loop.
