Body found at Ohio college football stadium

- Associated Press - Saturday, October 22, 2011

AKRON, OHIO (AP) - Authorities say the body of someone who apparently committed suicide was found at a college football stadium in Ohio, hours before a game was to kick off.

Gregg Bach, a spokesman for the University of Akron athletics, says the body was discovered around 10 a.m. Saturday in the stadium's bleachers and that university police have concluded their investigation.

University spokeswoman Laura Massie says police have told her the death appears to be a suicide. Massie says the man was a former student, but declined to elaborate, citing federal privacy laws. She says authorities are waiting to release his identity until his family has been notified.

University police did not immediately return phone calls.

Akron began its football game against Ohio University at 3 p.m. as scheduled.
