Jensen Beach man dies after falling from 13th floor of condo

Victim likely working on hurricane shutters

JENSEN BEACH, Fla. - A Jensen Beach man is dead after falling from his 13th floor balcony on Sunday night.

Richard Franzese, 67, was working around his Island Dunes condo when the incident happened just before 6 p.m.

A man who lives above Franzese said he heard a rattle and some banging, and when he looked outside, he saw a body on the ground.

Investigators said Franzese was likely working on his hurricane shutters because a step ladder, two pairs of pliers and a spray can of lubricant were found on the balcony.
