The body of 24-year-old Robert Fuller was found hanging from a tree earlier this week in a park near Palmdale City Hall, according to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

“All signs right now lead us to believe this was a suicide,” said Lt. Brandon Dean with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department’s Palmdale station. “But the investigation is not closed.”

Speculation is spreading on social media that Fuller may have been the victim of a hate crime, and that authorities are covering it up.
