Sadly, there’s a whole lot more questions than answers in this one. Somehow, a Lansing man got himself stuck inside a clothing donation bin earlier this week and died. The actual cause of death is still being investigated, but it appears to be strangulation. Police were called to the scene of the bin, located outside of a dry cleaning shop, after receiving word that the man’s legs were visible and dangling from the entry chute. The 53-year-old was pinned by his arm and neck, similar to a wrestling choke hold, according to the official report.
The man’s death isn’t being investigated as suspicious, though it looks pretty darned suspicious to me. An autopsy has been scheduled to ensure that there wasn’t any foul play, and also to determine approximately how long he was stuck in the chute.
Remember, folks: those bins are there for you to donate your used books and clothes, not yourselves.
