Update: according to ABC's Matt Keller, the dead person found in a conference room at Apple Headquarters was a man. A gun was found nearby.


Reuters adds that according to 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.

Finally, some media report that the police are already investigating the death as a possible suicide, implicitly confirmed by the Santa Clara Sheriff office which described the event as an isolated incident:  "Through further investigation, they determined there was no other individuals involved and they believe it was an isolated incident. There was no one else on campus or in the public at risk," Sgt. Andrea Urena with the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department told reporters.

And the hits just keep on coming. One day after AAPL reported its first revenue decline in over a deace, its first earnings disappointment in years, and the first ever decline in iPhone sales in history, the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is reportedly investigating a body found at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters according to NBC.

Acting spokesperson Sgt. Andrea Urina said she has no other other information at this time. Sheriff's investigators are on scene. The Santa Clara County Fire Department said crews were called to the scene but were then waved off and never went on campus.

As BMO adds, deputies were called to the company's corporate headquarters on Wednesday morning after a person was found dead, but only few details were immediately available. Multiple police vehicles could be seen at the campus.

Authorities have declined to provide further details, and it is unclear whether the person is an employee of Apple. The cause of death was also not immediately known and is under investigation by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.

The Apple Campus is the corporate headquarters of Apple Inc., located at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California, United States. Its design resembles that of a university, with the buildings arranged around green spaces, similar to a suburban business park.

I'd like to know what tasks he performed at apple. Was it just a lone distraught human being that had overwhelming trouble in his life or did this person have some special knowledge?
