Jordan Kajewski was discovered naked and covered with soot stuck in a chimney in Carroll, IA, earlier this week. He was naked and covered in soot.
According to witnesses, Kajewski claimed that he was playing a game of hide-and-seek with his cousin. He climbed from the roof of the Carroll Redemption Center and managed to get about 20 feet down into the chimney before getting stuck.
The Redemption Center's owner claimed that he'd been working late on the 17th when he heard a voice whisper "Get out of here." He apparently thought this was a ghost and left for home. His wife went to work the next day and heard somebody yell at her from within the chimney: "I’m in your chimney... I was playing hide-and-seek with my cousin. ... Don’t call the cops, I just need some help getting out."
The police and fire department were called to the Redemption Center that morning to help Kajewski out of the chimney. They tried pulling him out with a rope from the top, but ended up needed to smash a hole into the chimney to extract the naked man.
He was taken to jail and charged with trespass.
