Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP Investigates Suicide at Facebook

Posted September 30th, 2019.

MENLO PARK, September 30 2019 – Sanford Heisler Sharp represents the family of the Facebook employee who was involved in the tragic suicide on Facebook’s campus in Menlo Park, California.

We are conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death.

We have met with Facebook attorneys and representatives and will continue those conversations with Facebook in the days and weeks to come.

There seems to be conflicting information about the circumstances related to the death.  We are sorting through inconsistent reports in an effort to determine the truth for the family.

The family greatly appreciates community support and encourages people with information to come forward. Many members of the Facebook community and from around the world have already reached out.  We welcome anyone with information to contact us.

The family simply asks that the identity of the suicide victim and the family not be disclosed in public comment or on social media.
