Police: No One Had Key To Restroom Where Body Lay

LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) – Police say no one apparently had a key to the locked movie theater restroom where a 66-year-old Colorado man lay undiscovered for days after he died of a heart attack.

A police report released Tuesday says neither the theater nor its cleaning service had a key.

George DeGrazio’s body was found Jan. 14 in the Fort Collins theater when employees forced their way into the small family restroom to investigate an odor. Authorities say DeGrazio died of a heart attack, probably about five days earlier.

Police found a ticket for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” in his wallet.

DeGrazio lived in Loveland. He was last seen Jan. 9 and was reported missing Jan. 10.

The theater operator, Cinemark, said five employees were placed on leave while the company investigates.

    No One Had Key To Restroom Where Body Lay – Yeah right. More likely someone was reluctant to contact law enforcement because they weren’t supposed to be there. A public restroom that’s not cleaned for 5 days. Who do they think they are, the government?
