So, this story was a memorable part of my morning.  Tragic.

Excerpt:

Murphy says he was there when Josh’s body was found as an earth mover peeled back a steel fireplace insert within the chimney. Murphy has raised doubts about the coroner’s theory because of rebar installed atop the chimney to keep animals out.

“There’s no way that guy crawled inside that chimney with that steel webbing,” Murphy said, adding that he thinks Maddux was forced into the space. “He didn’t come down the chimney.”
