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.
