Man Found Hanging In Monroe County Tree

Last updated on Tuesday, January 20, 2009

(BLOOMINGTON) - A 54-year-old man was found hanging from a tree in Bloomington along a bike trail in Wapehani Park yesterday afternoon.

The Bloomington Herald Times reports a pair of hikers happened upon the hanging body around 4:00pm yesterday while out on the trail and called police.

The paper says when police arrived, they had to wrap the body in a blanket but leave it hanging until the coroner arrived.

Officers on the scene reported that there didn't appear to be any foul play and that the cause of death would most likely be ruled a suicide.
