Man Hangs Himself At Wilmington Middle School

WILMINGTON (AP) — Authorities have identified a man who hanged himself at a Los Angeles school.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office says he’s 36-year-old Martin Cabrera of West Hollywood.

The Daily Breeze reported a passerby discovered the body hanging from a tree Sunday morning in the courtyard of Wilmington Middle School.

Police say he apparently climbed a fence and tied a rope to the tree.

The school was closed for the summer and no children or staff were on campus.
