The victim, who was found dead on Wednesday in a conference room at the tech giant's campus in Silicon Valley, was identified as 25-year-old Edward Thomas Mackowiak of Santa Clara, California.

The Medical Examiner determined the manner of death was suicide and the cause was a gunshot to the head, the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office said in a written statement.

An Apple spokesman declined to comment what Mackowiak did for the company, but a LinkedIn profile that has since been taken down listed him as a software engineer.
