The LaPorte County Coroner's Office reports the cause of death of a man pronounced dead at the scene, in a wooded area in LaPorte on Friday evening, has been initially ruled as a suicide. LaPorte Police report officers responded to a call of an abandoned silver Jeep parked in a secluded area behind a building, in the 13-hundred block of Pine Lake Avenue, just after 6pm Friday evening, and upon checking the vehicle, discovered firearm ammunition lying inside. Authorities say officers followed foot tracks leading across a grassy area and into a nearby wooded area, where they located the 37 year old man lying on the ground with a single gunshot wound and the firearm lying nearby.
