Director of EQT Partners found slain in Munich

A director of private equity firm EQT Partners who previously worked for Morgan Stanley was slain and his body discovered in a delivery van in a Munich suburb, a police spokesman said.

The body of Dirk von Poschinger-Camphausen, 36, was found in the southwest of the Bavarian capital early Saturday, Munich police spokesman Markus Dengler said in a phone interview Sunday. His Audi A8 sedan was found near the body. Dengler declined to say how Poschinger-Camphausen was killed or whether police know of a motive.

“There’s no doubt that he was murdered,” Dengler said.

More than one suspect has been arrested and appeared before a custodial judge in Munich, Dengler said.


Poschinger-Camphausen joined the Munich office of Stockholm-based EQT last year after four years at Morgan Stanley in Frankfurt.

He was last seen alive Thursday when he left his apartment in the Munich suburb of Bogenhausen about 9:30 a.m., Dengler said. His wife reported him missing that afternoon.
