It may have been the ultimate karmic death, but Melissa Mazzeo did, in fact, died at the hands of her own stupidity.
She climbed into a clothing donation box over the weekend to try and steal donated clothing. But she became stuck in the opening and the large metal door slammed onto her head as she was trying to climb out. She died with her head sticking out of the box and her body inside. She was not homeless, in fact, she lived just a couple of blocks from the donation box.
