The body found deceased in Park City has been ruled a suicide, according to Stillwater County Sheriff Chip Kem.

Kem, who also serves as county coroner, stated in a Thursday news release that an autopsy confirmed and corroborated evidence at the scene.

The body was found on Wednesday behind the U.S. Post Office in Park City.

Kem said that the death was originally investigated as suspicious because the man was partially concealed with a garbage bag.

The state's Division of Criminal Investigations was also on the case.

The victim has been identified as a 52-year-old male.

Kem said the victim's name would not be release, as is typical practice of his office. The family has been notified.
