A week after the Market Street collapse, building inspector Ronald Wagenhoffer recorded two videos lamenting the loss of six lives and then shot himself to death.
The next day, NBC10 reported that in one video, Wagenhoffer said he blamed himself. "It was my fault," the station quoted him as saying.
Mayor Nutter's administration quickly refuted that, saying that city officials had reviewed the tapes and that Wagenhoffer had actually said: "It wasn't my fault." City officials declined to release the tapes, saying they were part of a grand jury investigation.
