Police close case of intern who suffered a fatal fall

Tallahassee Police have closed the case of a legislative intern whose body was discovered in abandoned building on Feb. 18.

Ryan Uhre, 23, died following an accidental fall, according to a close-out report released Tuesday.

Uhre was last seen on Feb. 2. He attended a Super Bowl party at Clyde's and Costello's, a popular watering hole in downtown Tallahassee, and then tried to order food at a nearby restaurant. His friends and family members reported him missing on Feb. 7.

His body was later found in an abandoned building several blocks from the bar. 

The report concluded that Uhre had fallen from a second-story window and died from his injuries. 

Police believe Uhre was in the building alone. There were traces of alcohol, cocaine and cannabis in his body, according to the report.

Uhre graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale and Florida State University. He was an intern in the office of Rep. Richard Stark, D-Weston, at the time of the fall.
