Thames Valley police and Renault have confirmed that R&D employee, William Millar, has died at the team’s Enstone factory in Oxfordshire. Mr Millar, who was 53, was said to have been seen walking down a bridleway within the compound of the team’s factory and was found at the scene with a shot wound to his head. The incident happened earlier in the week, and the police are not treating the death as suspicious. It is suggested that Mr Millar killed himself.
A post-mortem will be carried out today, and undoubtedly the team are shocked at what has happened. Our thoughts are extended to William Millar’s family and friends at this moment of great sadness.
