BOARDMAN - A parent reported a group of children found the body of a man Monday who hung himself in the vicinity of the elementary school and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in southwest Boardman.

Boardman Police Chief John Zeiler confirmed a body was discovered, but only released minimal information. Zeiler said the man didn't live in the area.

"That one's kind of touchy right now," the chief said Thursday morning. "The family hasn't all been notified - his kids haven't been notified yet."

Zeiler expected a press release to be issued after Christmas.
