Memorial placed near scene of deadly parking garage fall

Tom Desser Memorial

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Police are still investigating the death of a man who fell from a downtown parking garage Sunday.

A memorial for “Tom M Desser” has been placed near the scene of the fall. Police say he sat on the ledge of the garage for quite some time before his death.

They’re not ruling out suicide though they say he left no note and had no history of suicidal behavior.

“We’ve got some video surveillance we’re working with,” Grand Rapids Police Lt. Pat Merrill said. “It`ll probably be a few weeks before toxicology comes back and then we`ll know more.”

This is the third incident of this type involving a downtown parking garage in the past five months. Police do not suspect foul play in any of the cases.
