“At 6:25 am, Friday morning, an unidentified male was found hanging from a rope attached to a bridge inside of Central Park near 82nd Street,” according to an NYPD spokesperson, who said that suicide is suspected.
Early morning dog walkers were somber as word spread, and police tape cordoned off a large swath of the park. A Central Park Conservancy worker told West Side Rag that a co-worker had found the body upon arriving for his shift.
