ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities in Atlanta say the death of a man who fell over a railing at Turner Field has been ruled a suicide.
Investigators with the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office said Thursday that they discussed the death of 30-year-old Ronald Lee Homer Jr. with his family last week before releasing their findings to the media.
Police say Homer died after falling about 85 feet from a walkway on the fourth level of the baseball stadium after a rain delay in an Aug. 12 game between the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies. Police have said Homer, of Conyers, Ga., landed in the players' parking lot.
Police said no surveillance footage of his fall was available.
Investigators said they couldn't disclose additional details about Homer's death.
