Man's death ruled a suicide

WICHITA — The 40-year-old man who was found dead in his northeast Wichita apartment Tuesday afternoon took his own life, police said today.

The man was found about 2:30 p.m. by an employee at the Remington Apartments, 7272 E. 37th St. North. The employee went to check on the man at the request of a relative, authorities have said.

Authorities initially classified the death as suspicious — and possibly a homicide — but further investigation determined the man's death was a suicide.
