    Bones found in Louisiana bank chimney identified

    AP Tue, Jul 26, 2011

    ABBEVILLE, La. (AP)  Authorities say bones found in the chimney of a bank in Louisiana have been identified and belong to a man who has been missing for 27 years.
    The man's remains were found in May when the bank started renovations. Abbeville police Lt. David Hardy says the remains belong to Joseph W. Schexnider. He was 22 years old when his family last saw him in January 1984.
    At that time, Schexnider was wanted for possessing a stolen car, but it's not clear exactly why or when Schexnider entered the chimney.
    Officials couldn't determine how he died, but police speculate that he starved.
    The bank closed off the chimney in the mid to late 1980s. … 30961.html

        Poor man, his luck had run out.  He was already wanted for the poccession of a stolen car.  Too bad he didn't know that the chimeny was closed off about 4 years earlier.

    What a horrible way to die.  I wonder if he was afraid to call out, knowing that he should not have been there.  I would have also thought the smell would have been obvious to anyone in the bank.
