A 50 year old Director of the retail and online sportsbook HappyBet has been found dead at the entrance of his office in the German city of Frankfurt.
Oliver Frolich was found shot twice in execution style. Police say that while the investigation is ongoing, they believe that Frolich was on his way to work when he was shot. Law enforcement went on to say that no witnesses have come forward, and little evidence has been retrieved, save for some bullet casings by the body.
Frolich was a highly regarded betting entrepreneur, whose business recently signed a sponsorship deal with German Bundesliga club Bayer 04 Leverkusen. He also was big on philanthropy, working with several organizations to help aid the disabled.
HappyBet released a statement regarding the murder of Frolich, saying: "The employees of the companies in the Happybet group are stunned and shocked by the sudden and unexpected death of Mr. Frolich. We mourn especially with his family. Oliver F. has made a vital contribution to the business and shaped the entrepreneurial operation of Happybet sports betting."
Those with information regarding the murder are urged to contact the Frankfurt police, and there is a €5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
