Italy Prosecutor Reopens Death Probe of Monte Paschi Press Chief

Italian prosecutors reopened the investigation into the death of David Rossi, the former head of  communications at Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, after a request by his wife.

Prosecutors in the city of Siena, Italy made the decision after Rossi’s widow gave information “that needs in-depth analysis,” Siena Chief Prosecutor Salvatore Vitello said in a statement.

Rossi’s body was found in a courtyard below his fourth-floor office in March 2013. A Siena court later concluded that Rossi had committed suicide. Rossi, 51 at the time, was among several Monte Paschi employees whose homes and offices were searched by police at the time amid investigations into the bank’s purchase of Banca Antonveneta. Rossi wasn’t under investigation.
