The man who fell to his death at the Bay City Michigan Sugar plant on December 15 has been identified.
53-year-old Derrin Forgette was working in an elevated area above a dual screw system used to grind sugar beets. Police say he was cleaning a chute above the screws when he fell 120 into the grinder. Forgette had only worked for the company for about a month, according to Michigan Sugar officials.
The investigation into Forgette’s death is ongoing.
