Police find man hanged at London house as Deutsche Bank reports exec's death

LONDON (REUTERS) - London police said on Tuesday they had found the body of a man hanging in a house in central London, after Deutsche bank announced the death of its former executive William Broeksmit.

The bank told its employees in an internal email on Monday that Mr Broeksmit, 58, a former senior manager with close ties to co-Chief Executive Anshu Jain, had died at his home in London on Sunday. The bank did not state the cause of death.
