Suspected Snooper Selling VIP Info Committed Suicide

This is a very sad situation that no one would have wanted to happen. The suspect in the snooping and sale of Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher's private medical information was found hanged in his Zurich prison cell.

The man, who was not named, a manager at Swiss helicopter company, which was involved in Schumacher's transfer from Grenoble hospital to University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) on June 16 after he emerged from a coma. The French daily "Le Dauphine Libere" reported in July that leaked documents being offered to European media for some 60,000 Swiss francs ($66,016) appeared to have come from the IP address of a computer at a Zurich-based helicopter company.

The helicopter company lodged a criminal complaint on July 8 for the suspected leak of Schumacher's medical files, but said at the time it had no proof that one of its employees was implicated. An investigation by Zurich's cantonal prosecutor led to the arrest of an employee on Tuesday in connection with violating patient privacy and medical secrecy.
