A 27-year-old man died early Saturday after he was found bleeding from the mouth outside a Koreatown club in Manhattan. Police now believe that Michael Lin—who was missing several teeth when he was found by a waitress on the stairs near a second-floor entrance inside District 36 on West 36th Street near Fifth Avenue around 3 a.m.—may have fallen over a balcony. But cops are still looking into whether it was an accident or not.
Lin’s body appeared bruised and his jaw was broken, but police sources told the News the injuries appear consistent with a fall. Lin's roommate says the Flushing resident had recently broke up with his girlfriend of two years and went to the club with a friend. “I was supposed to go with him but my mom just passed away from cancer, so I wasn’t in the mood to go out,” roommate William Wong told the Post. “He was just a fun guy,” Wong said the News. “He’s a really nice guy. He always helps me out… He was a good kid.”
