Submission + - Lost iPhone prototype causes employee suicide (macrumors.com)

tlhIngan writes: "Physical intimidation of a Foxconn employee and a possibly-illegal search of his house may have led to suicide after an iPhone prototype in his possession was lost. Entrusted with 16 iPhone prototypes, he discovered one was missing, and searched the factory for it. Failing that, he reported the incident to his boss, who ordered his apartment searched (potentially illegally), and there are reports of physical intimidation by Foxconn security personnel. This ended tragically on Thursday at 3AM, when he jumped from his apartment building to his dead."
