YORK (CNN) -- Thierry de la Villehuchet, a hedge fund adviser and investor whose firm said he lost $1.5 billion investing
with Wall Street adviser Bernard Madoff, was found dead in his office in an apparent suicide Tuesday, police said.
say Thierry de la Villehuchet's body had cuts on the wrist and bicep.
Emergency personnel discovered the body of Villehuchet, 65, at 7:29 a.m.
in the Madison Avenue office of Access International Advisors, police said.
Villehuchet suffered "cuts made to
his arm, to his wrist and also to his bicep area, with a box cutter," New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said at
a news conference.
He also told reporters there were pills present, though it wasn't clear whether any were ingested,
and there was no suicide note.
The body will be examined and a toxicology report issued Wednesday, said Ellen Borakove,
a spokeswoman for the New York medical examiner.
Kelly read a statement from Access International Advisors' attorney
saying the firm lost $1.5 billion by investing with Madoff, 70, a former Nasdaq chairman who is accused of operating a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.
-- Two days after the suicide of one of Germany's richest men -- who was apparently despondent over financial troubles --
banks agreed to rescue his business holdings, the companies said in a statement.
Adolf Merckle, 74, was hit by a train
in the southwestern town of Ulm Monday. Details of the incident were unclear, but Ulm police said Merckle was apparently dragged
for some time after being struck, as they found blood some distance away from the body.
Merckle's family said that he
had been "broken" by the global economic crisis.
Merckle was No. 94 on the Forbes list of the world's richest
people, after having been listed at No. 44 with a fortune of $12.8 billion. But he lost hundreds of millions of dollars, including
company capital, betting against Volkswagen stock last year and his worth was listed at $9.2 billion in 2008.
financial troubles of his companies, induced by the international financial crisis and the uncertainty and powerlessness to
act independently which the financial problems brought about, broke the passionate family business man, and he took his own
life," his family wrote in a press release after Merckle's death.
