A German state minister in Hesse commits suicide over the economic impact of the coronavirus

The body of Tomas Schaefer, who for ten years held office, was found near the train tracks

Hesse Finance Minister Thomas Schaefer, “deeply concerned” about the repercussions of the coronavirus epidemic on the economy, has taken his own life, according to the announcement of the Prime Minister of this German federal state, Volker Bouffier.

Schaefer, 54, married with two children, was found dead near a railroad on Saturday. Sources from the Wiesbaden Prosecutor’s Office indicated that the suicide hypothesis is the main one.

Schaefer was responsible for ten years for the finances of this land, where is Frankfurt, the German financial centre, headquarters of the European Central Bank and large German banks. The now-deceased worked “day and night” to help businesses and employees adjust to the economic repercussions of the pandemic, said Bouffier, who declared himself “in a state of shock” in a recorded statement.

“Today we can say that he was deeply concerned,” added this official, an ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel and a member of the CDU, like Schaefer.
