Managing Director of Tata Motors Commits "Suicide"
Police are treating the death of the British managing director of Tata Motors as a suspected suicide.
Investigators in Thailand say there are no signs of foul play after Karl Slym, 51, fell from a hotel room window in Bangkok on Sunday.
Mr Slym was staying on the 22nd floor of the Shangri-La Hotel with his wife after attending a board meeting in the Thai capital.
Now, call me a skeptic. BUT - a guy who was almost single handedly creating a cheap to run, cheap to make alternative to Detroit's expensive cars
and was apparently happy at home, a big success at work, and had no other indications of anything untoward going on just squeezes through a "Really
tiny window, way too small to push him through" and commits suicide?
Tata motors were apparently about to become legal for sale in the USA within the next year or two, and would sell their cars for pennies on the dollar
compared to the prices that western auto makers currently charge, and this guy was the main force behind this creation and the push for this company
to take this direction.
Without him, the company was failing and struggling in an emerging market.
This "suicide" of a major figure in business has barely been covered in the Western media.
