Body discovered in Tilden Park, suicide suspected

A body was found in Tilden Park late last week in what park officials believe to be a suicide.

The body of the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound was discovered around 8 a.m. by a trail-user in the Orchard Picnic Area of the park, according to Sgt. Tyrone Davis of the East Bay Regional Parks Department.

Although officials know the identity of the victim, they are waiting to release the information until the next-of-kin can be notified.
