Fatal fall from fence, shooting victim named


An ill-fated at­tempt at climb­ing a fence res­ul­ted in the death of a man in Frank­ford on Sept. 4.

Au­thor­it­ies have not re­leased the name of the 26-year-old vic­tim, who was found dead between two fences along the Ara­mingo Av­en­ue on-ramp to In­ter­state 95, po­lice said. Phil­adelphia’s med­ic­al ex­am­iner de­term­ined that the man broke his neck in a fall while climb­ing one of the fences.

In an un­re­lated case, a man was found dead in woods near the 1100 block of Adams Ave. in North­wood on Sept. 3. Po­lice iden­ti­fied the man as Kris Her­old, 27, and said he had been shot fatally in the head.

The Phil­adelphia In­quirer on Tues­day re­por­ted that Her­old was act­ive in the city’s trans­gender com­munity and used the name Kyra Kruz. The pa­per said Her­old re­cently took the sur­name Cor­dova.

Any­one with any in­form­a­tion on the vic­tim should con­tact the hom­icide unit at 215-686-3334.••End­Frag­ment
