The body of a man in his 20s was found hanging from a tree near Palmdale City Hall, and authorities Friday were investigating the grim find.

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.

There were no other details immediately available.
