Death At Atlanta Bathhouse Under Investigation, Here’s What We Know So Far


Police arrived shortly after 3 p.m. on Tuesday (Feb. 10) to investigate an executive suite on the main floor of Flex Spas Atlanta, a gay mens social club, where Project Q reports a man was found dead inside. Was there any foul play?

From Project Q:

An Atlanta police spokesperson said officers responded to Flex after the man’s body was discovered inside the sprawling facility on 4th Street next to the Downtown Connector. But police do not suspect foul play.

“No foul play suspected at this time and cause of death has not been determined,” Officer Ralph Woolfolk says.

The man, a longtime customer, had a history of heart problems and likely died of natural causes, according to Chris Meche, Flex’s general manager. Meche declined to discuss other details of the incident pending notification of the man’s family.

An investigator with the Fulton County Medical Examiner wasn’t available for comment on Tuesday.

Flex is part of a company that bills itself as a gay men’s social club with sister locations in Cleveland, Los Angeles and Phoenix.

Last summer two deaths occurred at Philadelphia bathhouses. Both men were originally reported to have died of natural causes but later found to be drug related after medical examination. We await results from this latest incident in Atlanta.
