Philadelphia Police have confirmed that a body was found outside the Valley Green Inn on Monday morning. Arriving on the scene at 6:29 a.m., police determined that a gunshot wound to the 32-year-old man’s head was self-inflicted. A medic officially pronounced him dead on the scene at 6:46 a.m.
Further information on this case is still unknown, as the man’s full name, among other details, has yet to be released. The gun in question was found at the scene and recovered by police.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said one Mt. Airy resident who passed by the scene during a morning run and asked that her name not be used. “He was just exposed and remained exposed the whole time…It was so sad to see. That’s one of the most peaceful places I know.”
