A man had been due to appear in court over possessing a stolen vehicle, but he disappeared and was never found His remains were discovered lodged in the chimney of a bank. This man vanished 27 years ago According to the police reports, "he died of dehydration after having climbed in to the chimney and found that was unable to free himself" But why nobody noticed until some time in July? Corpse...you know have a very strong odor. Your thoughts Sourceshttp://www.news.com.au/breaking-news/missing-man-found-in-chimney-27-years-on/story-e6frfku0-1226102454667

Strange that a chimney was never considered a security risk. Are banks generally that trusting? Or do they just rely on a safe or strong-room?

That is a very good question. But if you think about it, not all banks have chimneys and the ones that do must be thinking the exact same thing...is the money safe.

I read an article about this man a few days ago. It said that the chimney was on the second floor and it was used as a kind of storage room and that few people actually went to the second floor, but it is still a strange thought that his remains had been hidden inside the chimney for so many years. When the bank needed more space they decided to use the second floor and they removed a metal plate and found the chimney behind it and inside the chimney they found his remains. It must have been quite a shock for the people who found him, they probably just thought that it was an ordinary old chimney without any hidden secrets

why on earth, would anybody hide inside a chimney? I think it would it been better if the guy ran away to another state.
