Baltimore County police have identified the man who died Dec. 30 in an apparent fall on the former Seagram's Distillery property on Sollers Point Road.

He is Tony King Jr., 23, of no fixed address, according to police officials.

Police were called to the vacant plant at about 9 a.m. Monday and found the man on the floor of one of the abandoned buildings, according to a police department statement. He was pronounced dead at the scene by fire and rescue workers.

A police investigation found that King fell 14 feet from a walkway. Baltimore County detectives do not suspect foul play, but the medical examiner's office will issue an official ruling as to cause and manner of death, according to the statement.

How many more deaths and accidents are going to happen before owner will do more than repair fence?

The better question is, how many more deaths and accidents are going to happen before people realize they shouldn't be on the property?

Is not a better question, it is a different question....

It was a better question because your question implies that people authorized to be on the property have been hurt.

I really cannot control how everyone is reading, I do not see here any implication. It is our duty to do our best to keep everybody safe. You will not prevent people crossing road where is not to cross sign and get killed, you will not prevent people speeding with no speeding signs, however you can minimize effects, otherwise deaths, by placing speed bumps or by developing safer cars. This is our duty, that is all I have to say here.

Why was he there? He was trespassing! Case closed! Property owners can only do so much.

sure, keep repair fence or fight with the windmills.

from free-dictionary.com: A property owner who knows that people frequently trespass at a particular place on his land must act affirmatively to keep them out or exercise care to prevent their injury. Let's wait for another death.....or multiple ones?

Again! He was trespassing. The law is on the side of the criminal, not the innocent property owner. Something you are unable to comprehend. He was in the wrong!
