Greektown Casino

A man jumped to his death from the Greektown Casino parking garage in downtown Detroit this afternoon.

The man collapsedĀ at Macomb and St. Antoine near the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice.

The victim has not been identified, and it wasn’t immediately clear why he jumped.

    Lets not assume anything until a full investigation and the 100’s of hours of CCTV are examined thoroughly which l am sure the police are doing. There are more questions than answers at the moment so lets keep putting pressure on the authorities to come good.

    This is nothing new

    Has anyone yet investigated why and how this has happened? And if it was suicide what measures are in place to prevent this happening again?

    I have a friend who works security at Greektown. This happens all the time down there. Most of the time it doesn’t make it to the news.

      I know this is true. A co-worker of mine was at Greek Town one night when a person jumped ( or pushed) from the parking structure and the next day he was surprised that it did not make the news. Perhaps the media does not report bad news that would affect the golden geese casinos. I think robberies of patrons are covered up as well. Good old Detroit/Chicago media at its best.

    I think we are all pretty clear why he jumped from a casino parking structure. The real question is weather or not he was assisted in the jump.

      Maybe he lost a huge chunk of change and committed suicide? Or, he won too much and some Greek goombah flung him over the edge?

    Sad. May be gambling related, which would not surprise me.

    • Gambling related? Do you think he won a lot of money?
