Police standoff with a man on the broadcast tower near 27th and Memorial, Tulsa, OK | Aug. 12, 2011
For six days and night, without food or water, the man who became known as Tulsa's "Tower Guy" held police and rescuers at bay, capturing the attention of the nation and fueling speculation about what led him to climb that tower, and why he wouldn't come down.
It turns out that William Sturdivant II was a very troubled young man, who was dealing with serious mental illness, including schizophrenia.
He had a meltdown after going off his medications and traveling to Dallas to see his young child.
He walked all the way back to Tulsa, sleeping beside the road, hoping someone would give him some food.
