Foul smell at elementary school turns out to be dead body in air duct

It's not often that an event right in my neighborhood makes the front page of CNN's website, but it did today when a foul smell at Sierra Vista Elementary School in Phoenix turned out to be a dead body in the cafeteria air conditioning ductwork. Classes were dismissed for the day.

Apparently the guy was trying to break into the school and became trapped and died (presumably of thirst).

I've submitted this one to Fortean Times, which regularly prints accounts of stupid criminals and strange deaths.

The Arizona Republic covered the story earlier today.
