Cliff Baxter, who had been mentioned during investigations into the financial affairs of Enron and the beaviour of company auditor Andersen, was described as being troubled by the Enron accounts.
His death, believed to be suicide, casts a dark shadow over the whole Enron saga which, until now, had only seen the sacking of Andersen partner David Duncan in connection with the shredding of documents relating to the Enron audit at the firm.
In a statement, Enron said: ‘We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of our friend and colleague, Cliff Baxter.’
