Police: Suicide likely in hanging

Police are investigating the discovery of a young man found hanging from a tree Wednesday morning in Tampa Telecom Park.

A Leslie Controls employee saw the man shortly before noon while driving back from lunch on Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace Deputy Police Chief Patricia Powers said.

Temple Terrace police were unable to say who the man was, because he had no identification, she said.

He was described as a black man in his 20s or 30s, 6 feet tall, with a medium build. The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy today.

"It's more than likely a suicide," Powers said.
