Omaha police say there are no suspicious circumstances in the death of a roofer Tuesday.
Walter Bequette, 52, was pronounced dead at Lakeside Hospital.
Bequette was taken there after being found unresponsive on the roof at 16130 Cedar Circle, said Officer Michael Pecha, a police spokesman.
Investigators determined that Bequette was working on the roof about 11:15 a.m.
A co-worker told police he was on the other side of the roof when he noticed that Bequette had stopped hammering.
He walked over the peak of the roof and found Bequette in a fetal position, not moving. The co-worker called 911.
Members of the Omaha Fire Department arrived and lowered Bequette from the roof.
