Police ID Suicide Victim

Horsham Police have been able to positively identify a man who was found Wednesday after an apparent suicide.

The man was found in a wooded area behind a home off of Marilyn Drive, police said. He died of hanging, according to police. 

Horsham Police Lt. Jon Clark said Friday that the man's identity was confirmed. His name has not been made public. 

"Our hearts go out to his family and friends," Clark said. 

The area where the man was found is in a neighborhood off of County Line Road between Blair Mill and Meetinghouse roads. Police believe that the man has not been in the woods prior to Monday afternoon.  

He was wearing blue jeans, a blue zippered hooded sweatshirt over a gray shirt, black sneakers, brown knit gloves and a knit hat, according to police. 

The man had a black wallet, but no identification, as well as cigarettes, a lighter and a pen on his person. Police described him as a white man with light brown facial hair. He appears to be in his mid-20s and has a thin build, police said. 

No scars, marks or tattoos can be determined at this time.
