U.S. Businessman Dead

American businessman Charles Bench was found dead in his Moscow apartment Friday in an apparent suicide, the police said.

Bench, general manager of the Moscow bureau of the Multi-Page paging service provider, apparently shot himself with a Walther gun, forensic experts were quoted by Interfax as saying.

Bench, born in 1957, was registered with the Interior Ministry as a foreign resident. The reason for Bench's action was not immediately known.
