California authorities said an investigation is underway after a young man’s body was found early Wednesday hanging from a tree near city hall.
Lieutenant Brandon Dean of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau told My News LA that the unidentified male was found with a rope around his neck and hanging from a tree in Poncitlan Square, which is located near Palmdale City Hall.
Dean said all evidence suggests the man took his own life. However, he said investigators will confirm a cause of death after acquiring a full autopsy report and information from the decedent’s relatives regarding any possible mental illness.
Diamond Alexander said on Facebook she was the older sister of the deceased man, whom she identified as Robert Fuller,24. Alexander didn’t reveal additional information regarding Fuller’s death but asked the public to come forward if they know anything.
