Emerson College Student Killed In Fall From Roxbury Building
BOSTON (CBS) – A 21-year-old Emerson college student was killed in a fall from a Roxbury building Sunday morning, police said.
WBZ-TV’s Jim Smith reports.
Justin Amorratanasuchad of Seattle, Washington, was pronounced dead at the scene after the fall at around 10:45 a.m. at the building on Columbus Avenue in Roxbury. Police said the death appears to be accidental.
In a statement sent out to the Emerson community, school officials said Amorratanasuchad was working on a film project before he fell to his death.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports.
“I wish to express our deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved Justin. A service to remember and celebrate Justin’s life will be organized at an appropriate time, about which more details will be forthcoming,” said school president Jackie Liebergott in a statement.
Amorratanasuchad was thought to have slipped on a gutter while on the roof. A former tenant at the building said the roof area was off-limits until recently.
In one of Amorratanasuchad’s films, there was a shot that included a roof-top perspective.
