On March 30, 2009, a feed truck was found near a feed mill with its engine running. After a search for the driver, the feed yard manager found an open hatch on top of a corn bin for the flaking mill. The bin's contents were emptied by cutting a hole in the bottom. Employee #1 was found dead of asphyxia, lodged in the chute at the bottom of the bin and covered in corn. There were no witnesses who would admit seeing Employee #1 enter the bin or acting as a standby person.
