Park goers found the body of a man hanging from a tree in Elysian Park on Sunday afternoon, police said.
There were no signs of foul play, and the incident is being treated as a suicide, said Sgt. Frank Gonzalez with the LAPD Northeast Division. The man appeared to be 30 years of age. Police had no further details available.
An Eastsider reader who was hiking in the park at around 3 pm near the Elysian Reservoir said he saw firefighters and other workers pulling the body up a hillside in a stretcher.
