Police: Man’s Body Found Inside Fortune Cookie Company’s Dough Machine

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – This wasn’t a good fortune. Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found inside a fortune cookie company’s dough mixing machine.

The identity of a 26-year-old man is still a mystery since police were called to the Houston branch of the Wonton Food company Sunday afternoon.

Police said that they are waiting for the man’s identity to be verified by the Harris County forensics lab.

“The victim, an employee of the Wonton Food Corporation at [2902 Caroline Street], was operating an industrial dough mixer,” police said in a statement to Houston Press. “A fellow employee found the man deceased in the machine.”

The Wonton Food company is one of the leading makers of fortune cookies in the country creating nearly 4 million cookies a day in their New York factory and a smaller number in the Houston plant. They also make other Asian food items under the Golden Bowl brand.

Police do not suspect foul play was involved in the man’s death.
