Body Found in Duct at Phoenix School

UPDATE on FOX NEWS 5/25/07:
The man, whose identity hadn't been released as of Friday afternoon, tried to use the duct to get into Sierra Vista Elementary School and died there, said Sgt. Andy Hill, a Phoenix police spokesman.

Police didn't know why the man tried to break in or how long he had been there. "Obviously because of the smell, there are indications that he had been there for some time," said Hill.

The cause of death wasn't known but Hill said it wasn't considered a homicide. Police didn't release any details about the man.

Children were evacuated from a Phoenix school Friday after an adult's body was discovered in an air conditioning duct above the cafeteria, officials said.

The body at Sierra Vista Elementary School was found as a plumber investigated a foul odor, said district Superintendent Mark Dowling.

Police Detective Cindy Scott said in an e-mailed statement that the adult was "not related to the school" but offered no other details.

Weird... I wonder who this person was and what they were doing there.
