Family disputes Singapore probe into son's death

The research engineer's rising career seemed enviable. Shane Todd of Montana was working abroad in Singapore on the latest cell phone and radar technology, coveted by global corporations.

Todd was found dead at age 31, however, in his Singapore apartment last June, and his death has become an international controversy that involves local police, the FBI, an independent forensic analysis and, the parents allege, corporate intrigue found on their son's hard drive.

Singapore police have been investigating Todd's death as a suicide by hanging. They refer to a pulley system around a toilet and over a door in Todd's flat.

His parents, however, say that's absurd and they assert foul play.

    Does sound rather odd. Someone who commits suicide doesnt generally come up with such an elaborate way of hanging theirselves.
