Electrician Found Dead at Aramark Uniform Service

Employees at Aramark Uniform Service say a person was found dead inside the north Toledo, Ohio, business around 5:30 a.m. Thursday morning, July 26, according to a WTOL 11 News report.

The victim, who police have identified as Michael Meeks, was a private electrical contractor from Fort Wayne, Ind.

Aramark employees say the man was seen working on top of the scissor lift about an hour before his body was found.

Although his exact cause of death is pending, police say Meeks was working on a scissor lift without a harness.
