You would have to ask the person/s who put it there. It is an expression of the grieving process, don't make it ugly when it doesn't concern you.

Wait.......so no one is grieving the innocent civilian? Just the workers? Is that right? Is there a gofundme for his family? Maybe Castanet can find this out and report on that.

Could be a co-worker or friend of the four workers that died.

Would people prefer that the investigators throw open the doors so castaland can opine and discuss sensitive findings in the case?

There's absolutely zero chance of a temp agency employee operating a crane or anything to do with the crane.

Worksafe has to do the investigation squeaky clean and by the book. Otherwise they will be investigated and taken to court. Like that mill explosions up north years ago.
