Colorado authorities say a man missing for five days was found dead in a locked restroom at a movie theater after suffering a heart attack.

George DeGrazio, 66, of Loveland was found Saturday in a family rest room at a theater in Fort Collins, according to Denver's 7News.

Deputy Coroner James MacNaughton said DeGrazio was found when theater employees broke the lock on the restroom door to investigate an odor. The coroner's office ruled the cause of death was a heart attack.

DeGrazio's family reported him missing Jan. 9, and his vehicle was in the theater parking lot. Police had searched the area without success.


How in the world can you not notice a dead body for five days? Don't these people ever clean the restroom?

I'm a little confused about what door was locked. The stall door? The entry door to the bathroom?

If it was the entry door, where was the key? Apparently the restroom wasn't locked when the guy went in. Didn't anyone check to see if anyone was in there before they locked the door?

And what's wrong with those police? They didn't do a very thorough search if you ask me.

This is truly disturbing. Not only did no one question why the door was locked but after a few days wasn't there some sort of tell tale odor?

So they only clean the toilets and the bathroom at the theater there once every 5 days. Gross ..Obviously the police checked the area about as well as the cleaners at the theater did their job.

Based on the wording I get the impression that the deceased was in a locked personal stall. It is interesting that no employee questioned why the stall door, or any door, was locked.

However, it's possible the theater cleans the restrooms when they are open to customers, so a locked stall could get overlooked. Even the same person cleaning the same bathroom over a period of several days might knock it up to coincidence. Until they noticed the smell.

But, reporting that the police searched the area, and failed to notice a locked bathroom stall, or whatever door was locked, is kind of surprising and disappointing.

Person reported missing and his vehicle is outside a movie theater? Check the bathrooms?

To be honest though, who thinks to look into the restroom for a missing person? Every time the cleaning guy went in there I'm sure he was like oh, well I can't clean that it's occupied lol.

It takes a couple days for your body to float after drowning if I remember correctly. Let's say it was 80 degrees out 80 degrees= 1-2 days for a body to surface underwater. I could only imagine swimming in that pool and bumping into the dead body. Why doesn't anyone require them to make it so the pool isn't murky?
