Officials with the Racine County Sheriff’s Department are conducting a death investigation after the body of a 33-year-old Milwaukee County man was found near Cliffside Park, 7320 Michna Rd., at 8:20 a.m. Sunday, said Sheriff Chris Schmaling.

That man’s name is not being released, but Racine County Medical Examiner Mike Payne confirmed the man died of an apparent suicide, he told The Journal Times.


Foul play is not suspected, Schmaling told Racine County Eye Sunday.

“I can tell you at this point that there’s nothing suspicious about this case,” he said.

Payne said the cause of death was hanging.

Deputies found an unoccupied car early Sunday morning at the park and discovered it was listed to the man later identified as the deceased. They later discovered the man’s body in the park.
