Woman found dead in the gym bathroom 2 days after entering

Patricia Austin was found dead in the bathroom stall, not pictured here, two days after she was recorded entering the gym.


A Chicago woman was found dead in the toilet of her gym two days after she for the first time at the facility. The police said Patricia Austin, 78, entered Life Time Fitness on 12 July, but was not discovered until another woman warned staff about the sight of her feet in a stall on the 14th of July, The Chicago Tribune reported.

An employee reportedly returned to the bathroom and knocked on the stall, but got no response, Marc Loftus, Burr Ridge deputy police chief, told The Chicago Tribune. The worker then climbed underneath the locked position and found Austin unresponsive on the toilet. The paramedics were called, while the staff attempted CPR, but she was pronounced dead on the scene.


An autopsy showed that Austin died of natural causes, the news outlet reported. An employee reportedly told the police that the barn may have gone off, because it was considered, and that it is not uncommon for members of the use of the toilets during the employees of the cleaning.

Surveillance reports and images of her key swipe give Austin came around 7 pm on July 12, but there is no evidence that they ever left the facility. Her car was discovered in the parking lot, The Chicago Tribune reported.

Lawyers for Austin’s son were scheduled to discuss on Wednesday.
