Founder of Ben & Jerrys is found dead

Jerry Greenfield found dead in suspicious circumstances

<!-- E IIMA --><!-- S SF -->US ice-cream firm Ben & Jerry's is in a crisis after co-founder Jerry Greenfield has been found dead in very suspicious circumstances

The US firm have refused to confirm early reports and are letting very few details out until a full police investigation is carried out..

Global sales of Ben & Jerrys Fairtrade products totalled £758m ($1.4bn) in 2005, the Fairtrade Labelling Organisation said and it is thought that this has caused friction between the company and some other ice cream cartels.<!-- E SF -->

Initial reports have come out that Mr Greenfield was found on the site of it's new door-to-door delivery franchise that is being developed in the US. A new 172,000 square foot factory is nearly finished and about to be put into operation for this summer.

Although no official information has been released, a source from the factory has spoken to reporters. He said 'Mr Jerry was found at the back of the factory next to the finishing area. His body was unrecognisable at first as it was covered in strawberry sauce, chopped nuts and hundreds and thousands'.

This strange version of Mr Greenfields death has led some people to believe that he has topped himself.
