"The status of taking the drug and the reason for the suicide are still under investigation, but the family members have no objection to the cause of death and immediately handle the matter," added the article which was machine-translated from ETtoday. 

The report also added that there were heart-related drugs in his office. CCTV footage showed that Chang walked alone to the 7th floor before the accident happened.

Taiwanese media reported that Chiang died after falling out of the 7th floor of a building. The CEO was found unconscious in the company's car park and was rushed to hospital where he was declared dead.
