Police say they were called just before 8 a.m. Friday to a call of a deceased male on the roof of John Deere Electronic Solutions at 1441 44th St. N. in Fargo.

Police say at this stage of the investigation, the death appears to be a non-suspicious workplace-related incident.

“Caller said that this guy is a contractor that was up on their roof working and they got a call from his boss saying that they hadn’t heard from him. So, they went up and checked on him and believe he’s been up there frozen all night,” dispatch audio from Friday morning stated.
