Akron-Ohio Game Kicked Off Despite Apparent Suicide Before Game

After news that a dead body was found at Akron Football's Infocicision Stadium on Saturday, clean-up crews got to work to try and get the game started in time. A dead body was found in the front row hours before kickoff and there have been reports that a suicide note was found at the man's home, and that it is being treated as such: a suicide. The man had went missing recently, and his identity has not yet been made public.

The game has now got underway, the kickoff has already taken place and things are proceeding is normally, however, the four rows around where the body was found are empty, according to Mocking The Draft:

Akron game is underway. Four rows empty where man's body was found earlier today.    

Either there's more, deep cleaning for public safety needed in the area, or perhaps there is still some investigating to do at the scene.
