Body found at local park

NEW CASTLE — Neshannock Township police are investigating an apparent suicide discovered Tuesday at Pearson Park.

The body of a 71-year-old man was discovered in a wooded area of the park. Police did not release his name Tuesday pending notification of relatives.

However, officers said the man died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. There was no sign of foul play.

The body was found by someone walking through the park around 1:25 p.m., but police believe it had been there for several hours. It was noted Tuesday was Election Day and people were at the Hutchison Center early, but nothing was heard.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
