I took pictures on day four. The base of the tower has building around it that vary in height. Setting up anything to catch him just isn't feasible. It's also easy to say "just leave him alone, or just let him jump". Contrary to reports, there just isn't that much in the way of law enforecemt out at this location. I found onlookers to be sparce. It's about a 800 yard perimeter that has been set up. "We" just haven't dealt with a situation like this. My thought of "screw the crazy guy", went out the window after I'd watched him for 10 minutes. Anyone with a heart that visits the scene will have a bigger one when they leave. Hoping for the best..we love ya, Tower Man.

Go stretch a hammock where he can sleep in it. Tell him you just want him to be safer when he sleeps. when he falls asleep in it shoot him with a tranquilzer. When he's out then go get him safely off the tower.

To 44OhiO4, the tower is wider at the bottom and narrows as it goes up. I doubt the police can set up a net to "catch" him if he falls. He likely won't clear the tower and will hit other parts of the tower on the way down.

I'm from Ohio and have been following this story for days now. I don't understabd why they don't just put a net below him while hes sleeping, go up to rescue him, and if he falls he will be safe. If he dies from lack of food and water that will be on your hands. Gotta be stealthy and smarter than this individual. Good luck. Hope the guy lives.
