The Toronto Star (star.com) has this sad story about a ghost hunter originally from Indiana, who fell to her death from a University of Toronto building on September 10. Leah Kubik was looking for specters with her friend at 1 Spandina Crescent on the university campus and tried to follow him, apparently across the rooftop. She fell to the ground, several stories below, and died later at a hospital in the city.
University spokespeople say they do not understand why the pair was looking for ghosts at that particular location, which is not known for hauntings. "Richard Fiennes-Clinton, who leads ghost tours of the university's campus, said: `This particular college itself doesn't even really have any kind of substantial ghost stories to it. There's certainly a lot of other buildings around the university that do have stories.'"

Update: according to this article in the University of Toronto's college newspaper, The Strand, investigators are now saying Ms. Kubik and the man with her were not ghost-hunting. "Police reported that the couple had been ghost-hunting, but later withdrew the claim. Toxicology and autopsy results have not been released to the press. Neither the man nor the woman was a university student."
