Maintenance workers investigating a strange smell Wednesday morning discovered a dead man deep in a heating vent at Russian Jack Elementary, according to the Anchorage Police Department.

The body was identified later in the afternoon as Michael Nix, 21, who had been missing since he left his apartment near the school on Aug. 24.

"He said he was going to get something from his car, and he never came back," said his sister, Sasha Loyd.

Nix was living with his girlfriend on East 20th Avenue. He'd been drinking that night, his sister said. An alcohol container was found with the body, said police spokesman Paul Honeman.

If it sleeps like a duct and smells like a duct, it’s a dead duct.

Yeah, I think most people would prefer a tad more dignity in their passing.

Yeah, remind me not to drink and duct dive. Gotta tell you, this isn’t one of the things I’ve ever thought of doing, when drinking.

No worries, Ted Stevens is going to earmark a 250 million dollar screen (constructed by Alaskan’s, of course) to use in future duct deaths so as to hide it from the kiddies.

And if you say a word against it, he’ll get all hulked up on your butt!

This happens a lot more often than you'd think.

Every month or so another story surfaces on FR about some idiot burglar that tries to crawl in a ventilation hood outlet, a chimney, or an airshaft.

Sometimes they're rescued before they die. Sometimes they're not discovered for a long, long time. Some guy who disappeared in the 1970s was recently discovered in the disused brick chimney of a South Carolina gift shop. The shop had closed and was being renovated, and when they opened up the paneling that had closed off the fireplace, they noticed the smell . . . . nothing but bones, but they identified him by his driver's licence in the pocket of his pants.

Boy, no kidding... although I think that poor Elvis had it the worst. I wouldn’t want to be found dead on the toilet.

( like your tagline, btw... the Pixies are one of my favorite bands! )

I try to read the News-Miner from Fairbanks every day, as my kids are up there. (Durn kids won't return the grandson..but that's another story:) ) and I constantly get a good laugh out of it. Like the old man who was killed while driving by a moose hitting his car. His wife said "You have to admit, it's a pretty Alaskan way to go!" I love that place!! They might move a bit slower than we in the Lower 48, but they sure do have a good sense of humor!
