The body of a man in his 20s was found hanging from a tree near Palmdale City Hall, authorities said Thursday.

The body was found about 4 a.m. Wednesday with a rope around the man’s neck, hanging from a tree in Poncitlan Square, according to Lt. Brandon Dean of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau.

All indicators point to a suicide, Dean said, but investigators are waiting for full autopsy results and information from the man’s next of kin regarding past issues with mental illness.
