Tulsa police have now identified a man found dead at the bottom of an elevator shaft this week. Police say 29-year old Matthew L. Rocho Jr. fell down the elevator shaft in the abandoned ORU building near 17th and Boulder on Thursday morning.

It had been abandoned for about a decade.

Witnesses say they saw smoke and heard an explosion just before Rocho's body was discovered.

It's not clear what he was doing in the building at the time of the accident.
