Elizabeth Holmes had her legal team email widow and demand she return her Theranos biochemist

• Daily Mail

-Ian Gibbons took his own life in 2013 on the same day he was to be deposed in a patent lawsuit filed against Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes 

-In the months leading up to his deposition he became increasingly ostracized at the company, and vocal about the problems with the Edison

-The Cambridge-educated biochemist was hired by Elizabeth Holmes in 2005, who would attach her name to his many patents over the next eight years

-His widow Rochelle said that the night before he was to be deposed he asked her if she believed he was going to lose his job, and she said yes

-The next morning he was found on the floor of the couple's bathroom after taking an overdose of pills - he died a week later

-Holmes never once spoke to Gibbons' widow, and instead had her legal team send an email demanding she return her husband's computer and documents 

-Holmes and Theranos' former COO were charged with 11 criminal felony counts in June 2018 and could face up to 20 years behind bars if convicted

The much anticipated Elizabeth Holmes documentary that aired on HBO Monday night revisited the tragic details of the Theranos biochemist who took his own life rather than expose the fact that the $9 billion company was built around a machine that did not work.

Ian Gibbons was found close to death in his bathroom after taking an overdose of pills on the morning of May 17, 2013, the same day he was to be deposed in a patent lawsuit filed against Theranos by a competitor.

He died in the hospital one week later, at which point his widow called the Theranos office to inform Holmes of the devastating news.

Holmes, who is currently awaiting a date being set for her fraud trial, did not call back however, and instead Gibbons' grieving wife was sent an email demanding she turn over her husband's computer and any other confidential Theranos documents.
