Action News has learned that police are leaning toward suicide as a cause of death after a headless body was found in a Delaware County creek.

However, no official ruling has been made in this case so far.

The body was found around 10:00 a.m. Wednesday in the Crum Creek, which runs behind the Crum Creek condos in Nether Providence.

Sources tell Action News that investigators found a noose close by the headless body.

The badly decomposed body has been taken to the Delaware County coroner's office for further investigation.

The source also tells Action News that investigators have no indication of foul play at the scene.

The body has not been identified so far.
