The maker of the electric cars Tesla Model S and Model X said Wednesday it plans to offer a $200k reward for the remains of a patient who died from an electric shock last month.
The company said the reward, announced in a press release, would go to the family of the man, who was in his mid-20s.
The patient’s family told the newspaper he was diagnosed with cancer in 2013, and the company said he died in September after experiencing “severe and sudden shock.”
Tesla said the patient was treated at a hospital in South Korea and returned to the U.S. on Aug. 12, when he returned from a trip to China.
The company said in a statement Wednesday that the company is working with authorities to identify the patient’s cause of death.
The San Mateo County coroner’s office said on Wednesday that it had received the body.
The California Highway Patrol said it was investigating.
The state Department of Consumer Affairs said the agency has taken over the case.
