Doubt he was killed by a live wire, but maybe he fell trying to take copper out of the elevator shaft, I know there is some wiring in shafts, most likely just couldn't see and walked into the shaft.

T real wiseguy. The property has been abandoned for thirty years. I doubt if anybody would pay the utilities on an abandoned building that long. As for copper mining that probably ended way before they got there. But on a different note I heard that lassie pushed Timmy down the well.

I'll bet you anything that the will find out that the electricity was on in the building. That guy is a thief And was probably going to.steal copper wire and when he cut it he probably got a big zap of electricity causing him to fall

Were they trespassing? They were probably looking for a warm place to stay, maybe homeless? Anyway, Elevator shafts are dangerous places especially if the building is run down, IMO no good reason for a firefighter to risk his life if the guy was already dead.
