— A Janesville man died after a fall down a flight of stairs Monday on his birthday.

Patrick D. Roehl, who turned 41 on Monday, fell down a flight of stairs from the first floor to the basement at what police think was his home at 1120 Boynton Court.


Authorities were called at 8:50 p.m.


Roehl was found by his father and died Tuesday at Mercy Hospital, Janesville police reported.


The initial investigation showed Roehl was intoxicated and that his death resulted from an accidental fall, Rock County Coroner Jenifer Keach said this morning.
