BRADLEY COUNTY, Tenn. — A burglary suspect found hanging in the closet of the home he broke into may have committed suicide.
The man’s body was found on Friday in the closet of a spare bedroom of the mobile home on Ramsey Bridge Road in Bradley County, two days after the homeowner reported the burglary.
The discovery was made while the homeowner and a friend were cleaning up after the break-in.
According to court documents, the suspect is believed to be a man that was staying at a neighbor's house.
That neighbor's daughter, Sarah Clowers, said that she and the man broke into the house, but she hadn't seen him since. She described the clothes that he was wearing, and the description matched what the dead man was wearing.
His name has not been released.
Clowers was charged with aggravated burglary and theft under $1,000.
