Update and a note to readers: Antrim police now say that this person died by suicide, though earlier they had reported it was a suspicious death. Police Chief Scott Lester said the investigation initially showed circumstances that weren't typical of a person who died by suicide. The confirmation of the person's death by suicide came through an autopsy today.

Except in rare circumstances, The Sentinel does not report on a suicide, including the name of the person and the manner of suicide. This didn't happen today because of the initial report of a suspicious death.

We have since removed the name of the person and address to follow our policy of not identifying the person who died by suicide.
