Thriller Thursday - Accidental Death of Philip Carlisle Chinn?

This following death was ruled accidental. When a 28 year-old falls from a window according to one report, or from a third floor to a second floor according to the death certificate, you have to wonder if it truly was accidental. When I went scrabbling for an obituary, I found this article from the Cleveland Plain Dealer and then at least one readable page from FBI case files. You be the judge. Accidental or not?

  1. Wow, sounds like a $200 scammer got what was coming to him, there.

  2. I could hardly read through this due to my jealously of you being able to cross reference the FBI case files! I hardly never get the chance.

  3. This is really the only one I've ever found.
