SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The body of a man has been found at the bottom of a smokestack at San Antonio's former Pearl Brewery after construction workers redeveloping the iconic complex reported a foul odor.
San Antonio police Sgt. Javier Salazar says the man apparently had been dead for several days and is believed to have been a construction worker.
Salazar said his family hadn't seen the man for several days. He says the man apparently had been working on a construction project in a building adjoining the smokestack and appeared to have been inside a covered walkway connected to the smokestack when he fell about 20 feet.
The brewery's old boiler house is being renovated to become the Boiler House Texas Grill and Wine Garden.
