Two Suicides Discovered Within One Week

Gulf Islands National Seashore

National Park News

The bodies of two Pensacola men were found in the park earlier this month – one in the Naval Live Oaks Unit and the other in the Santa Rosa Area. Rangers were notified by dispatch of a man down on J. Earle Bowden Way west of Lot 10 in the Santa Rosa Area on the evening of May 10th. They responded along with deputies and found the body of a man about 30 yards from the shoreline, lying on his back with an apparent gunshot wound below his collar bone. A Glock firearm was near his right hand. The death has been ruled a suicide. Then, early on the morning of May 16th, a maintenance employee found the body of a man hanging from the rafters of the youth group pavilion at Naval Live Oaks. A suicide note was found at the scene. The victim was identified through the driver’s license found in his possession. According to the note at the scene, he was homeless and had no living family members.
