I tried to publish this yesterday afternoon but somehow, it did not take. On Tuesday, 7 Feb, approximately 1345 hrs, one Tim Miller (name not confirmed), white, foreign national, committed suicide by jumping from the roof of the Grandview Tower Condo/Hotel located on Perimeter Road, Clarkview, which is close to my stable and the VFW. His body landed on Tamarind Street which is at the back of the Grandview. According to various people he entered the coffee shop of the hotel, ordered a coffee and then walked out, telling the staff he would return, he was going to look at the 8th floor. It appears he took the elevator to the roof where he proceeded to jump. Workers on the roof of the nearby Tune Hotel, which is under construction as well saw him on the roof of the Grandview and witnessed his jump.
Investigator SPO 4 Romero, from Station Four was the first police official on the scene. The body could not be touched until the Crime Lab folks could arrive and that took a pretty long time. By the time I left the scene, the body had not been identified and the staff at the coffee shop said he used the last name of Miller. This was a shocking incident and the body was not in too bad a shape, possible because he hit some thick cables and this broke his fall a bit. He missed a parked car by a couple of feet. NOTE: NAME IS TOM MILLER BUT NATIONALITY STILL UNKNOWN. 15 Feb Update - his name is Norbert Welser, 75 years old, Austrian.
