August 17, 2010|By Justin Fenton, The Baltimore Sun

The man found dead in a trash chute of a downtown apartment building has been identified by city police as a 30-year-old resident of the building.

Harsh Kumar, who police say lived on the 16th floor of the Park Charles building in the 200 block of N. Charles St., was found Aug. 12 in the parking-level trash compactor after an apparent fall from one of the building's top floors. Police say an autopsy has not shown any obvious signs of foul play or any injuries other than those consistent with a fall, but the investigation is continuing.

Police say Kumar lived with a relative, who was out of town at the time of the incident. Friends said Kumar was a likeable IT analyst whose sister works at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
