Man identified in Ohio balcony fall

CINCINNATI (AP) — The victim of a fatal weekend hotel balcony fall in Cincinnati has been identified as a 24-year-old Indiana man.

The Hamilton County coroner said Alexander Crouch died of massive trauma after the fall from the 16th floor of the Garfield Suites Hotel early Sunday.

The coroner told The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/X61ZCA ) that Crouch, who lived near Indianapolis, was in town for a birthday party.

Hotel officials told the coroner's office that the men at the party had been drinking. Toxicology tests are pending to determine if Crouch was intoxicated.

His parents were notified of his death Sunday.
