The Maryland Occupational Safety and Health office is investigating the conditions that led to the death Tuesday of Kyle Hancock in the 2000 block of Sinclair Lane in the city’s Clifton Park neighborhood, agency spokeswoman Theresa Blaner said Wednesday. She declined to comment further. She said she would not speculate on what investigators might find.
