Suicide suspected in Howarth Park

Santa Rosa police Monday were investigating a possible suicide at Howarth Park.

A man who appeared to be in his 20s was spotted by a passerby alongside a path in the northern end of the park off Sullivan Way, Sgt. Mike Lazzarini said.

The man appeared to have hanged himself from a tree, Lazzarini said.

A person called police at 7:24 p.m. to report finding the man along the path in a wooded area north of Lake Ralphine, about 200 yards east of a fire trail entrance, emergency dispatchers said.
