This lovely young woman was Jamie Minor of Austin, Texas. I write about her in the past tense because she is deceased.
How, you ask? Well apparently, Miss Minor decided to use an nontraditional way to enter her workplace. Specifically, she entered the Trace restaurant through the duct work. Yeah, you read that correctly. This woman may have been attractive, but she was lacking in the brains department. Police officials estimate that Minor was stuck in the vent – dead – for a month or more.
Somebody should have told Jamie to leave crawling around the ventilation system to the professionals: like John McClane.
The body of a 26-year-old woman who had been missing for more than a month has been found in a restaurant ventilation system. Jamie Minor, from Austin, Texas, was trying to enter the downtown restaurant through its duct work when she became trapped and died, police said.
It is not clear how many days or even weeks she may have been trapped for before she died and police have yet to determine the exact cause of death. Jamie, who had a history of mental illness, was last seen on May 23 when she showed up for work as a hostess at the Trace restaurant at the W Austin hotel. Supervisors were said to have been concerned by what they described as her ‘erratic behavior’ and fired her before sending her home.
No offense, but how good can the Trace restaurant be if no one smelled a dead body for more than a month?
