An 82-year-old man died after being stuck inside a Denver elevator for almost a month.

It took a month for anyone to find him, but his body was eventually found in the elevator of a parking garage in southeast Denver on August 2.

Isaak Komisarchik, 82, was last seen alive on July 5.

Pixley said the activation of the elevator's emergency button was recorded electronically twice, although officials never received the call.

Elevator fix workers finally discovered his body after multiple residents of the Woodstream Village apartments reported a awful smell coming from the parking-garage, according to the Daily Mail.

Family members said the last time they saw Komisarchik, he was wearing gray pajama trousers and a gray-and-white striped shirt around 2pm on July 5.

Denver Fire Department spokesman Capt Greg Pixley said detectives are now trying to determine why no one responded.

Denver Fire is working with police investigators to answer two main questions: was Komisarchik the person who pressed the emergency call button and why did those calls go unanswered?

According to Pixley, pressing the emergency alarm will typically send an alert to an on-site security group or emergency monitoring agency who will then call the fire department's dispatch.

The city's elevator code mandates that elevator operators monitor emergency notifications at all times.

The Post reported that in compliance with Denver city code, the elevator vehicle should have had an around-the-clock emergency switch labeled "Alarm", and an intercom system or phone labeled "Help" for those inside to contact security. It appears Komisarchik did what he needed to do to get help and yet the closely regulated system for rescuing people trapped in elevators failed. Elevator fix workers found the body.

"Something is not right", Pixley said. MEI did not reply to several phone messages left by the Denver Post seeking comment.

Numerous Woodstream residents complained to managers of a strong odour emanating from the garage area but nothing was done.

Greystar Management Services oversees operations at the Woodstream apartment complex. "We are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident with the local authorities".

An autopsy of Komisarchik has been completed, but the cause and manner of his death are still under investigation, said Steve Castro, a spokesman for the Denver medical examiner.

"I've never seen anything like this in my career as a Denver firefighter", said Denver Fire Department spokesman Cpt.
