Apple LogoOn Wednesday morning at approximately 8:35 a.m., the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department was called to Apple's 1 Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino after a body was found in a conference room, according to several news reports.

There is no official word on what happened and Apple has not commented on the situation, but a sheriff's spokesperson has confirmed the deceased individual was an Apple employee and that no one else was involved. The employee's death has been described as an "isolated incident" with "nobody else on campus or in the public at risk."

Update: Apple has issued a statement on the situation.

"We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of a young and talented coworker," Apple spokesperson Kristin Huguet said in a statement to BuzzFeed News. "Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends, including the many people he worked with here at Apple. We are working to support them however we can in this difficult time."

Update 2: According to the Santa Clara Country Medical Examiner's Office, the Apple employee who died yesterday was 25-year-old Santa Clara resident Edward Mackowiak. Cause of death was suicide caused by a gunshot wound to the head.

Couldn't agree more. My last girlfriend was a nueroscientist who researched antisocial behavior like suicide and psychopathy. She tried telling me antisocial behavior like suicide isn't about selfishness but profound depression and specific brain patterns. I told her she was wrong. It IS selfish. End of story.
She was the neuroscientist, but you're the expert. Silly little woman.

There's no indication of anyone being shot. The sheriffs confirmed that nobody else was involved, which suggests that this was a sudden attack of illness and a natural, yet unfortunate death.
Suicide seems more likely.

It rather bothers me how glib the first few responses in this thread were.

Ah yes, the expert against the MR member who has zero education on depression. I hope you find the hilarity in what you've exposed here.

My last girlfriend. Noted.
