Deputies Investigate Body in Woods
Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies conducted the investigation Wednesday in a wooded area off U.S. 19 near the Coral Landings Shopping Center following what appears to be a suicide, officials said.
Palm Harbor Patch received phone calls Wednesday asking why Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies were conducting an investigation near the Coral Landings Shopping Center on U.S. 19, which is between Tampa Road and Nebraska Avenue.
As the accompanying photographs show, the deputies were working in a small, wooded area next to the sidewalk on the east side of U.S. 19.
A spokesperson for the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says a preliminary investigation found the incident appeared to be a suicide. No other details were released.
Palm Harbor Patch usually does not report about suicides, however we wanted to explain what happened after receiving inquiries about it.
