KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 20-year-old Kansas City man is dead after apparently falling off a 17th-floor balcony at the Westin Crown Center Hotel.

Police say officers were called to the hotel at 6 a.m. Wednesday after John Conner Schaible's (SHY-buhl) body was found in the bushes on the west side of the building.

Schaible's friends called hotel security after waking up and not being able to find him.

Police say there are no signs of foul play, and toxicology results are pending.
