There are bizarre deaths. And then, there’s Garry Hoy.
A promising young man who had a dangerous hobby, a fatal one.
Body slamming office windows.
And not just any office windows, but one on the 24th floor of the Toronto-Dominion Bank Tower.
Hoy’s story has fueled many urban legends and has been told and retold so often that the details are all mucked up.
Was he possessed?
Did he have a sudden hunger for fresh air before his great fall?
Was he pushed?
Was it suicide?
Well, you’re about to find out.
10 He Was A Lawyer
Chance didn’t bring Garry Hoy to the 24th floor of the Dominion Bank Tower. He wasn’t some poor adrenaline junkie who found his untimely end on the courtyard in front of the building. Garry Hoy was a successful lawyer in Toronto.
Garry worked in the Holden-Day Wilson Law firm as a specialist in corporate and securities matters. He was also smart and well-liked.
And that’s not all. He also made a senior partner at the Firm. Garry was a valuable member of the organization. He had it all.
9 Hoy Was Not High
Many people believe that Garry Hoy must have been under the influence of some drug or hallucinogen.
He must have been pretty wasted when he made his fatal dive through the windows of the Holden-Day Wilson firm. Of course, something must have made him take that leap.
Sorry to disappoint folks; Hoy wasn’t juiced up on LSD or ayahuasca. He was in control of all his faculties before the dreadful incident. And neither was he suicidal. So, what happened?
