Deutsche Bank Whistleblower Vanishes

The son of a late Deutsche Bank executive who shared his father’s internal bank documents with the FBI and news outlets such as Forensic News and the New York Times after his father’s death has gone missing in Los Angeles, police and others said.

Val Broeksmit was last seen driving away from Griffith Park on April 6th after dropping off his girlfriend, Marie Peter-Toltz, and her son. Hours later, Broeksmit failed to return to the park. The following morning, Peter-Toltz activated the “find my iPhone’ feature on Broeksmit’s cell phone, which pinged in South Central Los Angeles.

There, according to Peter-Toltz, she found Broeksmit’s car running with the keys in the ignition, but no sign of Broeksmit.

Peter-Toltz reported Broeksmit missing to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD)’s Missings Person’s Unit, who have since opened an investigation.

On Monday, the LAPD released a public statement pleading for anyone who may know something about Broeksmit’s disappearance to contact authorities. “If you have seen, or have any information regarding [Broeksmit’s] whereabouts please contact the Los Angeles Police Department, Missing Persons Unit, at (213) 996-1800. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).”

Anything is possible…” a detective on the case told Beverly Press, “we don’t know what happened or where he is.
