Suicides Continue to Plague Pemiscot County

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO - Suicides by hanging continue to plague one southeast Missouri county.

In Pemiscot County, authorities are looking into such a death that occured earlier this week.  This comes after four men, some of whom were friends, were found hanged at different locations in the Hayti and Caruthersville area in 2006.

Sheriff Tommy Greenwell says his deputies responded to a call Tuesday of a suicide on County Road 559.  They found the body of a 31-year-old Caruthersville man who apparently hanged himself.

Greenwell says he does not believe the death is related to the suicides of four men who died in a similar fashion last year.  Those men ranged in age from 17 to 23.
