Snape was vice president at Citibank where he performed fraud risk management at the banking powerhouse after moving to Budapest from Mickleover in 2012. The 36-year-old's untimely death is being investigated by a coroner in England named Robert Hunter. Senior Coroner Hunter opened an inquest into Snape's death and has asked Mexican police for their reports surrounding the incident. Hunter said he was told the banker's death occurred on March 8 and his body has been returned to the UK. "The death of Robert Snape was reported to this office on 27 March. He died on March 8 in Mexico. I am informed a post-mortem took place in Mexico," Hunter said.
In addition to the post-mortem performed by the Mexican authorities, another post-mortem examination has taken place in Derby last week. The results of the second post-mortem have not been received yet. Hunter added, "I have approached the Mexican authorities to request a copy of the post-mortem and the Mexican police reports."

Hunter also set out to "pursue information" from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as part of his investigation. After Hunter has convened with Mexican authorities, the information will be reviewed May 31. A date for the full inquest has not yet been confirmed. Snape's LinkedIn profile confirms he was working as a fraud risk manager for Citibank since October 2016. He was responsible for conducting reviews across the company that made sure the company's policies were enforced. Citibank has declined to comment on his death.
