MS AUTUMN Radtke shared her work troubles during lunch with a business partner on Feb 25.

Early the next day, the 28-year-old chief executive of Singapore virtual currency exchange First Meta was found dead on the roof of a ground-floor rubbish collection point at a Cantonment Close Housing Board block.

"She was clearly stressed," said Mr Steve Beauregard, who had lunch with her. "She talked about... challenges with the business and I was trying to help her address some of her issues."

He had rented a room in her office-home at nearby Everton Road.
