Now classified as a case of unnatural death.

Startling new information has come to light in the death of 28-year-old Autumn Radtke, the CEO of First Meta, a Singapore-based virtual currency exchange.

The New York Post reports that 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. 

Reuters reports that friends and colleagues said Radtke, 28, was wrestling with professional and personal pressures, not least running a start-up that was struggling to gain traction.

'She had a phenomenal network of highly successful people around her, and here she is running this little exchange and it just isn't taking off in the way anybody had hoped', Steve Beauregard, CEO and founder of GoCoin, a start-up which provided bitcoin-related services to First Meta, told Reuters.
