According to State Police Public Information Officer Lt. J. Paul Vance, the cause of death appears to be suicide.
The identity of the person has not been confirmed, Lt. Vance said. However, State Police, “became involved in the investigation after receiving a report about a person who was despondent. Unfortunately, we were too late,” Lt. Vance said.
“We have a tentative ID but we are not releasing the name until it is verified and pending notification (of the family),” Lt. Vance said.
The body has been transferred to the State Medical Examiner’s office for a postmortem, “but I can tell you now that there was no criminal cause,” Lt. Vance said.
Police did not report where in the park the body was found, nor details of the suicide.
