Insanity: A corpse was found on the roof of Opening Ceremony on Tuesday. "An Opening Ceremony staffer made the grisly discovery yesterday during a smoke break," reports Gawker via a tipster, adding that the NYPD has confirmed that the body of a white male was found on site. Another tipster claims the man was shoeless (and possibly homeless) and that police believe he fell from a neighboring roof. The store had to shut down and cancel a photo shoot Tuesday afternoon for the investigation. Staff won't comment on the event except to say that they're seeing this as a random and unfortunate occurrence, the sort of thing that could happen to anyone with a roof.
