Cahokia police discovered the body of a nineteen-year-old man hanging from a bridge early Sunday morning.

The victim's body was discovered around 8 a.m. April 25 dangling below a bridge on Levin Drive -- just across the Mississippi River from south St. Louis.

Authorities believe the teen was a suicide victim, though an investigation is ongoing.

Police have yet to release the name of the teen.
