Prosecutor wants autopsy of MPS spokesman after suicide
Troubled bank asks for silence 'in respect of David Rossi'07 March, 17:45
Initially, the prosecutor, Nicola Marini, said that only an "external inspection" was needed.
In a statement released by the bank, MPS said it "asks for silence as a form of respect towards David Rossi".
Rossi is believed to have jumped from his office window.
His house and office were recently searched as part of a probe into financial scandals at the bank, but he was not under suspicion of wrongdoing.
In his office he left a note to his wife that said, "I made a mess".
Investigators Thursday found other scraps of paper in his office which appeared to indicate he was attempting to write a letter to his wife to explain his decision.
