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.

The can of spray paint sat on the ledge of a downtown Sacramento office tower. A tool for etching glass lay below. The body of Craig Fugate was tangled in some ropes about nine stories up the tower. Authorities on Tuesday were trying to piece together the bizarre death. They believe Fugate was somehow killed Monday while trying to vandalize the office building. “They found the spray paint where he climbed down” but no actual tags, said Officer Doug Morse. The Sacramento coroner's office is still trying to determine a cause of death.

SACRAMENTO -- Former Democratic state Assemblyman Tom Calderon has decided not to run next year for the state Senate seat being vacated by his brother, Ron Calderon (D-Montebello), friends and associates said Wednesday. The decision was not a surprise to many watching the campaign, including former campaign advisors who noted he had raised little money for the election. In June, the FBI served search warrants on the office of Sen. Ron Calderon as part of a public corruption investigation.
