Woman is second death in building’s trash chute

Two bizarre deaths in 13 months at the same Chicago high rise has investigators looking deeper.

80-year-old Florence Banta died this weekend when she fell 17 floors down a trash chute.

In February of 2012, 16-year-old Charley Manley fell down the trash chute 46 floors to his death.

It’s a larger than usual opening that’s low to the ground. But for two people to fall to their deaths in such a tragic way, residents are wondering if these were accidents or foul play.
