Woman finds boyfriend dead in cat door

Authorities in Florida launched an investigation into what they called one of the strangest accidents they've ever seen

Investigators said 32-year-old Charles Tucker Jr. was using the cat door early on Saturday morning as a way to get back into his girlfriend's St. Augustine home after she kicked him out.

Deputies said several hours after Tucker's girlfriend told him to leave she found him stuck in the cat door.

Tucker's girlfriend called 911 when she found the 32-year-old stuck, but when officers showed up four minutes later - he was already dead.

Tucker's friend, Will Elliot said: "He's a big guy. I don't even know how he could fit through there. Probably to get in and unlock the door. They said he had one arm through there and his head was caught in there like he was to reach up and unlock the door because there's no way he could fit through there."

The cause of Tucker's death has not been released. Officers were awaiting autopsy results before releasing that information.
