Authorities say a maintenance worker died after falling three stories at a Lafayette hotel.

The Tippecanoe County coroner says 42-year-old Jason Addler of Waynestown fell Thursday at the TownePlace Suites by Marriott. Investigators believe Addler was working in the attic when he slipped off a rafter and fell.

Coroner Donna Avolt tells the Journal & Courier that the extended-stay hotel remained open during the investigation.
