    Another dummy

    Thief hid in a trash compactor. Great idea until they turned it on.


    Update: Woman Killed Hiding In Trash Compactor / WILX TV 10, Mid-Michigan's Breaking News, Weather and Sports authority serving the Lansing and Jackson area

    It's a story that takes all the wrong turns from the start to the tragic finish.

    Authorities say 26-year-old Tyree Monique Tate and her sister were caught shoplifting monday at the Lansing Mall's T.J. Maxx. Eaton County Undersheriff Fred McPhail says the women then sprayed security guards with mace and fled, running across Saginaw Highway. Tate's sister was caught; Tate found a hide out.

    "She apparently jumped into a trash compactor after she had fled from the security guards at T.J. Maxx," McPhail says.

    And it was in that trash compactor, behind Goodwill on Saginaw, that Tate was crushed as she hid from the law.

    "They had an employee go out to cycle the compactor," McPhail says. "I don't know if they heard a scream or not."

    There are warning signs all over the trash compactor, telling people to keep out and do not enter. Tate wasn't in the compactor for very long, only a few minutes, but it was long enough to cause major damage.

    "Who'd think you'd jump into that and within a few minutes someone would come in and come outside and cycle the trash," McPhail says, citing this as being one of the most tragic, peculiar cases he's seen in 20 years of law enforcement.

    Tate eventually died from her injuries early Tuesday.

    Ingham County Medical Examiner Dr. Dean Sienko reviewed the autopsy results with News 10.

    "The cause of death was multiple crush injuries," Sienko says, also saying he's never seen a death with these type of circumstances.

    Tate's distraught family declined comment Tuesday at her Delta Township apartment. Her death is likely too much to bear and too painful to imagine.

    It's tragic.....but I laughed while reading the story.

    Wow, that's gotta hurt, but I don't know that I would consider it a tragedy.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I doubt she had to work all that hard.

    They should give the store employee a medal and reward. He just saved the state some money and removed an unwanted slug from the gene pool!

    I'm sure somehow, someway, it will be TJmax, the mall and security company's fault. I'm also sure she was just about to turn her life around and sung in church too.

    Ok so when is the family going to sue the mall and the employee lol. They are going to say something like the person should have checked before using the compactor to see if someone was hiding in it.

    Sad but true. Her families blood sucking lawyer will spin all kinds of yarns to a jury. In the end it will be payday for the rest of them.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Getting yourself crushed over shoplifting... Can you say idiot? This is just as pathetic as that kid awhile back that stabbed his brother to death with a steak knife because he wouldn't give him a turn playing Xbox...

    I would have to be in a pretty bad situation to even consider shoplifting, and I sure as hell wouldn't use force to try and escape.. I would just give up, the chances of successfully escaping are slim to none... and there are countless charges that can be tacked on for resisting..


    Its always something isn't it?
