The victim has been identified as Henry Stukuls of Atkinson, New Hampshire.
State police detectives and Halifax police are jointly investigating the incident, according to reports from Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz and Halifax Police Chief Joao Chaves.
At approximately 10 a.m. Tuesday, State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office were advised by Halifax Police of an unattended death, which occurred at 287 Holmes Street in Halifax.
The victim was transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth where he was pronounced dead.
The state office of the Chief Medical Examiner took jurisdiction and will determine the cause of death, according to the press release.
Wednesday, when this reporter sought comment, there was no activity at the building, and the front doors were locked. There appeared to be video cameras on the outsides of the building, which is located across from the entrance to the Halifax commuter rail station. The business is reportedly a woodworking company that makes custom wine racks. There was an overhead sign that read Maverick Furniture but appeared to be painted over on the front of the building.
A car with New Hampshire plates remained in the parking lot Wednesday morning and appeared to have been there overnight with frosted windows.
The dispatched 911 call over the public scanner Tuesday morning around 8: 30 a.m. was reported as a possible industrial accident involving a fork lift. Stukuls was reportedly found outside the building.
Police would not confirm any other details of the incident citing the ongoing investigation.
Police did say that there is no apparent danger to the public at large.
