Coroner: St. Marys man's death on bridge was accidental

ST. MARYS, Ohio (AP) — A coroner in western Ohio says the death of a man found hanging upside-down from a creek bridge was accidental.

Auglaize County Coroner. Thomas Freytag says all indications are that the man died because he was unable to breathe.

The county sheriff's office says the body of 36-year-old Richard Moon was found nearly two weeks ago hanging from the bridge outside St. Marys, his leg caught in a guardrail support.

Moon's car was found wrecked nearby.

Sheriff Allen Solomon tells The Lima News nothing was found at the scene to indicate Moon's death was anything but an accident.
