SAN ANTONIO - A man's body was found at The Pearl Tuesday afternoon.
The man's body was discovered at the bottom of a smokestack at San Antonio's former Pearl brewery after construction workers redeveloping the iconic complex reported a foul odor. Police were called to the 200 block of East Grayson around 12:40 p.m. Tuesday after the man's body was discovered between the Koehler Parking Garage and the brewery construction area.
A detective told News 4 WOAI the man was a white male around 30 years of age. San Antonio police Sgt. Javier Salazar says the man apparently had been dead for several days and is believed to have been a construction worker. He says the man apparently had been working on a construction project in a building adjoining the smokestack and appeared to have been inside a covered walkway connected to the smokestack when he fell about 20 feet.
The man's name has not been released.
The brewery's old boiler house is being renovated to become the Boiler House Texas Grill and Wine Garden.
