Man's death on campus an apparent suicide
CHAMPAIGN — University of Illinois police and the Champaign County coroner’s office are investigating the apparent suicide of a man found on campus Saturday morning.
UI Lt. Roy Acree said a passer-by found the body of a man on the west side of the parking garage located in the 800 block of South Sixth Street shortly before 11 a.m.
Acree said the man apparently jumped from the top level of the deck. His car was found on the top, and it’s believed he left a suicide note.
Police estimate the death occurred sometime after 8 a.m. Saturday because the man’s body was fairly dry and it had been raining before then, Acree said.
Acree said the man was from Champaign.
