A man whose body was found dangling outside a downtown Sacramento office tower may have been a tagger, authorities said. At some point Monday morning, it appears the man tied a rope around himself, authorities said. However, he was tied in a seated position like a rappeller. The rope was tied off with a window washing anchor, and fire officials believe that that anchor could have held his weight. But they don't think he was a window washer. Around 7:45 a.m., a person in another building reported seeing the man hanging near 12th and K streets.

Marion Adams, 59, the track and field coach and an assistant football coach at Rio Linda High in Sacramento, died after he was impaled by a parking-lot barrier outside the stadium where he coached. Adams was riding his bicycle out of the parking lot Monday night when he turned to wave at a student. While looking back, he biked into the end of the yellow bar that drops down to allow cars access to the parking lot. The bar impaled him in the stomach. Students rushed to his aid and called 911, but he died of his injuries a few hours later at a hospital.
