Authorities say the body of someone who apparently committed suicide was found at Akron's InfoCision Stadium, hours before a game was to kick off today.
Gregg Bach, a spokesman for the University of Akron football team, says the body was discovered Saturday morning in the stands of InfoCision Stadium, and that university police have concluded their investigation. He didn't say where in the stadium the body was found or who found it.
University spokeswoman Laura Massie says police have told her the death appears to be a suicide.
The person found was not a current University of Akron student, but was a former student.
The finding did not impact the start of today's game at InfoCision Stadium, with the University of Akron Zips playing the Ohio University Bobcats. Kickoff took place at 3 PM, as scheduled.
