Exec at Scandal-Plagued Olympus Found Dead in Apparent Suicide

VIDEO: Tsutomu Omori, 49, was found dead outside his apartment in India.

A senior executive of scandal-plagued Olympus was found dead outside his apartment in the Indian city of Gurgaon in an apparent suicide.

Tsutomu Omori, 49, head of Olympus Medical Systems in India, was found hanging near a park in his apartment complex, according to the Times of India. Police believe Omori committed suicide late Sunday. He left behind two suicide notes written in English and Japanese. One read, "I am sorry for bothering you," according to police.

The Japanese camera maker has been engulfed in a massive financial scandal involving efforts to cover up $1.5 billion in losses. Earlier this month, Tokyo police arrested seven OIympus executives for their roles in one of Japan's largest corporate scandals.

There have been no reports to suggest a link between Olympus's woes and Omori's death.
