An autopsy of a man who died Monday after falling from the BNY Mellon Building Downtown confirmed that he committed suicide.

Thomas Senchisen, 37, of the North Side, was pronounced dead at 4:34 p.m., minutes after falling from the 54-story building near Ross Street. Pittsburgh homicide detectives said their investigation indicates Mr. Senchisen intentionally jumped to his death. An autopsy performed Tuesday indicated that he died from blunt force trauma.

An emergency dispatch supervisor said initial reports were of a man who had fallen from the building around 4:30 p.m.

Mr. Senchisen was a 10-year employee of the Mechanical Operations Co., which provides maintenance for the building.

A spokeswoman said the company would have no comment on the death.
