A man believed to be a construction worker whose family told police he'd been missing for days was found dead at the bottom of a smokestack at the Pearl Brewery on Tuesday.(from the Express-News)
Workers reported smelling a foul odor and called police to the 300 block of Pearl Parkway just before 1 p.m.
Police believe he had been working on a construction project in a building adjacent to the smokestack, which bears the words “PRIDE” and “PEARL” in large white letters. He apparently was inside a covered walkway that connects to the smokestack when he fell to the bottom from a height of about 20 feet, [San Antonio Police Department Sgt. Javier] Salazar said.
Have you ever hung out in a smokestack? By yourself?
