Sometimes you’ve just got to let it go, man. Let it go.
A Palatine man was crushed to death in a trash compactor as he searched for his missing cell phone, authorities said.
Roger Mirro, 56, told a neighbor in his apartment complex around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday that he may have dropped his phone down the garbage chute, authorities said. Mirro asked for a key to the trash room in the lower level parking garage, they said.
Around 3 1/2 hours later, police got a call from Mirro’s wife saying he was missing, Deputy Police Chief Alan Stoeckel said in a statement.
