COPY-Death of man found in Ark. field was suicide

TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - Texarkana police say the death of a man found in a field earlier this week has been ruled as a suicide.

A man and a woman searching for scrap metal found 60-year-old Mark Davis about 1:30 p.m. Monday in a partially wooded, undeveloped lot.

Police initially investigated the death as a homicide, but spokeswoman Kristi Mitchell told the Texarkana Gazette that an Arkansas State Crime Lab concluded the man's death was a suicide.

Investigators believed Davis was homeless and had lived in Hot Springs before residing in Texarkana.
