police_lineA man was found dead, hanging from a tree on the 5100 block of N. Lake Shore Drive. Police are saying it was a possible suicide.

The body was discovered around 7:50 a.m. this morning. The man, described as being in his 30s or 40s, was found in a Chicago Park District field near Foster Ave. The scene was blocked off with yellow tape only yards from North bound traffic on the Drive.

Just two years ago on Oct. 28, 2013, a woman was found hanging from a tree on the 5900 block of Sheridan Ave. near Thorndale. That suicide also took place in the early morning around 7:30 a.m.

Area North detectives are currently conducting a non-criminal death investigation into this morning’s incident. If there are any updates we post to this story.

It is important to note that if anyone you know is displaying possible suicidal actions, please stay with the person and call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 800-273-TALK (8255).
