WACO, Texas (KWTX) Waco police were investigating Wednesday after workers found a dead man Tuesday afternoon inside a house they were working on.

Officers were sent late Tuesday afternoon to a home in the 1700 block of Fabian Dr., in far west Waco after a work crew discovered the man hanging from the rafters of house that still was under construction, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

The victim has not yet been identified.

He was shirtless and shoeless when he was discovered.

“We think he was working on a roofing crew in the neighborhood,” Swanton said.

Swanton said investigators believe the manner of death was suicide and that “there was absolutely no indication of foul play.”

The victim’s body was sent for autopsy, Swanton said.
