Body found hanging from tree in Griffith Park

LOS ANGELES – The body of a woman who apparently took her own life was found hanging from a tree in Griffith Park Tuesday, authorities said.

Firefighters were sent to the area near the park’s Merry Go Round at about 12:30 p.m., according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The body was that of a woman, Stewart said. Information on her age and identity was not immediately available.

The death has been classified as an apparent suicide, pending the results of a coroner’s investigation, according to Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department.
