CHICAGO (CBS) — An autopsy has determined a 15-year-old girl found hanging from a telephone pole in a Southwest Side alley Wednesday night committed suicide.

Stephanie Delgado, 15, of the 5100 block of North Mildred Avenue., was found hanging from a telephone phone in an alley in the 5000 block of South Hamlin Avenue, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

An autopsy on Thursday confirmed that Delgado died by hanging, and her death was ruled a suicide.

There is no reason to suspect foul play, and police are not investigating, police News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.
