A man in his 20s was found hanging from a tree in Palmdale, California on June 10th. The man has been identified as Robert Fuller by Diamond Alexander, who said she is his older sister on Facebook.
Brandon Dean of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau has said that Fuller’s death indicates a suicide. However, investigators are waiting for Fuller’s full autopsy results. So far, the Palmdale Sheriff’s station has not offered any details.
But even though there’s ongoing investigation into Fuller’s death, the City of Palmdale Government’s Facebook page declared Fuller’s death as a suicide on Thursday. (June 11)
Fuller’s sister has since launched a GoFundMe fundraiser, which has raised over $18,000.
“Words can’t describe how my family is feeling. We grew up there in the Antelope Valley, we have so many friends, families that loved Robert,” Diamond wrote on the page. “Please help with whatever you can. We greatly appreciate everyone. Thank you for standing with us during this difficult time.”
