ELYRIA — An Elyria man was found hanged under the Gulf Road/Ohio Turnpike overpass in an apparent suicide.

Deputy Coroner Eric Lockhart said the man was found hanging by his belt from a fence by a motorcyclist who had stopped to get out of the rain around noon today.

Lockhart said the man, who was in his late 40s, will be identified Monday after his relatives have been informed. No suicide note was found, Lockhart said.
