Man found hanging from Auglaize Co. bridge


AUGLAIZE COUNTY (WDTN) – A St. Marys man was found dead, hanging from an Auglaize County bridge Sunday afternoon.

Responding to a call just before 1:15, deputies found Richard A. Moon III, 36, hanging upside down with his leg caught in a guardrail support post of the bridge in the 7000 block of Washington Pike.

His vehicle was found wrecked just east of the bridge.  Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said Moon’s body hanging from the bridge was not a direct result of that crash.

The body was removed and taken to the Lucas County Coroner’s Office for an autopsy.

Solomon said the incident remains under investigation, but foul play is not suspected at this time.
