CHICAGO (STMW) — A man jumped to his death early Tuesday from the Gold Coast high-rise building where he lived, authorities said.

Police responded about 1 a.m. to the 0 to 100 block of East Chestnut Street and found that a man had jumped from the 32nd Floor, police News Affairs Officer Joshua Purkiss said.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office identified the man as Jacob Huzenis, 25, who lived in the same building. He was dead at the scene, a spokesman said.

An autopsy scheduled for Wednesday will determine the cause and manner of his death.

Area Central detectives are conducting a death investigation.
