TIPP CITY, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio coroner says a father and his adult son were found hanging from a tree and appeared to have both died by suicide.

Miami County Coroner Dr. William Ginn (gihn) said Monday that the men were discovered in the backyard of their home in Tipp City in western Ohio.

The Troy Daily News reports that a neighbor called 911 and reported seeing the men hanging from a tree around 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Police say in a statement that the two were dead when deputies arrived.

Ginn says he expects to have preliminary autopsy results by Tuesday, but toxicology results won't be available for several weeks.
