A police official informed NBC News that the man discovered dead this week on the campus of a Los Angeles high school was a reputed whistleblower who was said to have passed over confidential data about Deutsche Bank.

Valentin Broeksmit, 46, was discovered dead at Woodrow Wilson High School in El Sereno, northeast of downtown Los Angeles, at around 7 a.m. Monday. In an email to NBC News, LAPD Sgt. Rudy Perez said. According to Sgt. Perez, he seemed to be homeless.

The cause of death has not been determined by the coroner. The Los Angeles Times reported that authorities do not suspect foul play, citing an LAPD commander. The final medical examiner’s report won’t be out until the summer.

Broeksmit vanished a year ago after police claimed he handed over classified papers about Deutsche Bank to them.

The Los Angeles Police Department made a statement on April 19, 2021, requesting assistance in locating Broeksmit. He was last spotted on Riverside Drive in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, on April 6, 2021. His red 2020 Mini Cooper was located, but Broeksmit was not, according to authorities.

Who is whistleblower Valentin Broeksmit?

Broeksmit is the son of a Deutsche Bank executive who committed suicide in 2014. According to a New York Times profile from 2019, Broeksmit is the son of a Deutsche Bank executive who committed suicide in 2014. Broeksmit acquired access to his father’s email account and financial information after his father’s death, according to the New York Times.

According to the New York Times, federal and state officials were looking into charges of criminal misbehavior and the bank’s long relationship with former President Donald Trump. In August 2019, former President Trump’s longstanding bank confirmed that it has tax data requested by Congress as part of an inquiry into his finances.

Broeksmit was subpoenaed by the US House Intelligence Committee as part of its investigation into Deutsche Bank and its ties to Trump.

According to the New York Times, the materials were sent to journalists, FBI agents in New York, and Fusion GPS, a research group linked to an unconfirmed dossier about former President Trump.

After meeting with the FBI in Los Angeles, Broeksmit was given permission to publicly identify himself as a cooperating witness in a federal criminal investigation, according to the Times.

Broeksmit is a crucial character in the 2020 book “Dark Towers: Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump, and an Epic Trail of Destruction,” according to the Times writer who authored the article.
