Body discovered near Dunedin Causeway

DUNEDIN – A person fishing Friday morning discovered a dead body along the Dunedin Causeway near Honeymoon Island, authorities said.

Pinellas County sheriff's deputies are investigating, but said the circumstances do not appear to be suspicious. They said the man, believed to have been in his early to mid 40s, appeared to have committed suicide.

"He hung himself from the bridge," sheriff's spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda said.

Authorities were called to the scene shortly before 7 a.m. Friday and temporarily closed the bridge while the body was removed.

No identity has been released.
