Security Guard Arrested in iPhone Suicide Case

Another detail is emerging in the vague case of a Chinese tech worker who reportedly committed suicide last Thursday over the loss of an iPhone prototype. The Hon Hai Group, the world's largest contract-manufacturer of electronics -- and the company behind Apple manufacturer Foxconn -- detained a security guard at the location in which Sun Tanyong worked. Hon Hai released this information, without any further details, although it did offer condolences to his family.

Sun leaped to his death from his dormitory on July 16th after reportedly being investigated by Foxconn for a missing iPhone prototype that he was supposed to have shipped to Apple. The security guard in question has not been fully identified, and the reasons for his dismissal have not yet been announced. The mystery continues to unravel. [From: Bloomberg]
