OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A man who was electrocuted while allegedly trying to strip copper wiring from an abandoned warehouse in West Oakland last Wednesday night has been identified as 40-year-old Aaron Madacsi.

An Alameda County Coroner’s spokesman said Madacsi didn’t have a permanent address.

He died at about 8:30 p.m. last Wednesday while he was apparently trying to remove wire from an unoccupied building in the 2000 block of Mandela Parkway, Oakland police said.
