Three years ago, Philip Reitnour, 58, appeared on Shark Tank proposing a product called "EmergenSee" which would allow users to broadcast to family members with the push of a button. Monday, Reitnour's body was found in the Schuylkill River in University City, Pennsylvania. Authorities say he died from a gunshot wound to the head before his body was dumped into the river.

A video from the popular TV show "Shark Tank" shows Reitnour and a partner trying to convince the Shark Tank judges their product is a better alternative to 911 calls. The ABC reality show passed on EmergenSee after finding out that Reitnour didn't develope the product himself, rather he invested 3 million to have a tech company develop it.

Interestingly enough, a report by WPVI found that Reitnour was 3 million in debt, supposedly he took out the loan to fund the product but it is unclear if it ever provided any returns. So far there is no indication of who may have wanted the entrepreneur dead or who dumped his body in the river.
