The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office confirmed today that the man whose dead body was found inside a restroom at Los Angeles International Airport committed suicide, according to the Daily Breeze.

The body of Dominico Doy Nguyen, 35, was found inside a bathroom in Terminal 3 last Wednesday. Nguyen had his hands bound and a bag over his head. The coroner determined that the cause of death was self-caused suffocation.

Some information about Nguyen has been found. He had two recent addresses, one in Milpitas and one in Rancho Palos Verdes, but was considered homeless. A refugee, he first came to the United States in the mid- to late 1970s.
