CELL TOWER DEATH
Indiana man killed on Kentucky cell phone tower identified, company investigating

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, July 3, 2014 4:40 PM EDT
CYNTHIANA, Ky.


An Indiana man killed while working on a cell tower in central Kentucky has been identified.

Authorities are still trying to determine how 28-year-old Joel Metz, of Indianapolis, was decapitated as he worked on the tower hundreds of feet in the air.

WKYT-TV reports that investigators initially believed a cable had snapped, but they found the cable to be in one piece. The three other workers at the tower reported hearing a loud pop before realizing what happened, police say.

Metz worked for Fortune Wireless out of Indianapolis. Company officials were at the scene on Thursday trying to figure out what caused the cable to loosen.

Metz's body was left suspended 240 feet in the air, and crews with Northern Kentucky Technical Rescue finally removed the body around 10 p.m. Thursday night.
