Man dies after plunging from high-rise
A MAN is believed to have plunged to his death from a high-rise apartment balcony in the same complex where teenager Laa Chol lost her life.
Police were called to EQ Tower on A'Beckett St in Melbourne's CBD after reports of suspicious behaviour about 6.25am.
Teenage girl Laa Chol, 19, was stabbed to death during a party in the same apartment block in July.
When police arrived at the scene, five people were found outside the apartment building.
They fled the scene.
Three people were arrested, but two others went back inside the apartment.
Soon after a male was found dead. It's believed he fell from the balcony.
The investigation continues.
The man has not been identified.
Police will prepare a report for the coroner with oversight from Professional Standards Command.
Detectives are gathered outside the building and were earlier seen on a balcony.
A'Beckett St has been closed in both directions between Queen St and Elizabeth St.
Forensic investigators were spotted taking photos of two cars parked out the front of the apartment as police continue to examine the building's upper levels.
Aaron, a neighbouring resident who do not wish to reveal his last name, said he woke up this morning to see police investigating the grisly scene from his window.
"Everyone was out on their balconies looking down to see what had happened," he said.
"Because some of the apartments are short stay it seems like there's always something going on around here.
"The weekends are the worst time for parties and loud people."
More to come.
