(Atlanta, GA) – Mystery surrounds the death of a man found hanging from a bridge near Atlanta’s historical black colleges.
Believed to be in his early to mid 20s, no other details have been released about the young black male found with a chain around his neck other than it is believed the keys to the chain were in his pocket.
Atlanta police were called to the 600 block of MLK Drive at about 6:30 p.m. Friday.
Atlanta police Sgt. John Chafee said the chain was locked in several places. Chafee also said investigators canvassed the area and located one person who said they overheard someone yelling “don’t do it.”
Early speculation points to suicide but a full investigation has not been completed yet.
