HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville police were investigating a death in a parking garage at Huntsville Hospital on Tuesday. 

HEMSI responded to a call in the garage of the Professional Tower before ultimately turning over the investigation to the Huntsville Police Department. 

Madison County Coroner Craig Whisenant ruled the death a suicide.

Editor's note: Although WAFF does not typically report on suicides, the death was first considered to be part of a crime scene, as WAFF reported. The reporting on this now-determined suicide is strictly to notify readers that it is no longer considered to be part of a crime scene. Unless later ruled otherwise by the Huntsville Police Department, there will be no further reporting on this story.
