Police find 2nd body after reading note from suicidal man

While investigating the death of a man who jumped to his death at Spaghetti Junction at the height of Monday morning’s commute, DeKalb police discovered a note he left directing them to a house where another dead man was found.

The jumper, whose identification is not available, left a note in his car that led officers to a house on Gladney Drive where a deceased man was discovered in the house, DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The county medical examiner is trying to determine if the man was killed or died of natural causes, Parish said.

“There were no obvious signs of trauma,” she said.

Parish said the jumper died before 8 a.m. from an overpass leading from I-85 southbound to I-285 northbound.

It disrupted traffic for several hours while the ramp to I-85 southbound was closed.

Staff reporter Mike Morris contributed to this report.
