A 33-year-old man was found dead early Tuesday in West Maardam, possibly the victim of an electrocution. The man’s body was found Tuesday morning as the rest of the construction crew arrived at work, said West Maardam police detective Greg Wilking. The incident occurred inside the state archives construction project, 346 S. Rio Grande. An addition is being built onto the state archives building.
The man was doing electrical work on an upper floor, in a corner room, not easily visible to the rest of the workers, Wilking said. The incident was believed to have occurred sometime Monday afternoon.
