RIP ADOLPHE CHANCY (July 8, 1981 – February 10, 2024)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Saturday at 9:21 a.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published on March 25, presumably after the results of tox screening had come negative for substances.

The decedent was found lifeless after firefighters searched a burned building that authorities say housed a cannabis operation.

Fire crews were called at 1:17 a.m. to 832 E. Manchester Avenue, between Wadsworth Avenue and South McKinley Place, where they found heavy flames engulfing the abandoned 50-foot-by-100 foot commercial building. It took 113 firefighters 75 minutes to put out the fire.
