Last month when a 30-year-old Atlanta man fell to his death from the upper deck at Turner Field police initially determined that it was an accident, but now the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled it a suicide.
Alexis Stevens of the Atlanta Journal Constitution has more details, including:
Toxicology reports indicate that Ronald Lee Homer Jr. had alcohol in his system at the time of his death, an investigator with the medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled a suicide, but the medical examiner’s office would release no further details on the autopsy findings Thursday or why they pointed to suicide. The cause of his death was previously reported as “blunt force trauma.”
Ronald Lee Homer Jr. fell approximately 65 feet onto a parking lot during a rain delay in the Braves-Phillies game on August 12 and had previously placed a call to his mother saying he was going back into the game.
