FAIRFIELD - A man was found dead from an apparent suicide by hanging Thursday night, June 18, near Chautauqua Park in Fairfield.
Fairfield Police Lt. Julie Kinsella said a medical examiner still needs to identify the body, but it appears that the man found dead was 30-year-old Fairfield resident Joshua Meth. Meth's girlfriend reported him missing Sunday night, June 14. His body was found at approximately 9 p.m. Thursday by law enforcement officers searching for him.
Kinsella said the incident does not appear to be criminal, but it is still under investigation pending autopsy results.
