Rudolf Christian Karl Diesel (March 18, 1858 to September 29, 1913) was a German inventor and mechanical engineer, famous for the invention of the diesel engine.
In the evening of September 29, 1913, Diesel boarded the post office steamer Dresden in Antwerp on his way to a meeting of the Consolidated Diesel Manufacturing company in London. He took dinner on board the ship and then retired to his cabin at about 10 p.m., leaving word to be called the next morning at 6:15 a.m. His cabin was found empty during a roll call, and he was never seen alive again. A search of his cabin revealed that Diesel's bed had not been slept in, although his nightshirt was neatly laid out and his watch had been left where he could see it from the bed. His hat and overcoat were discovered neatly folded beneath the afterdeck railing. A badly decomposed body was later found and contents of the pockets identified as those of Diesel. Suicide because of financial difficulties is one possibility.
