A man in his early 20s died Tuesday afternoon after apparently jumping from a cell tower in the 3900 block of Booth Calloway Road, Richland Hills police said.
Police were called about 1:45 p.m. after the property owner entered the tower site and found the man's body. Police originally believed the man may have fallen through a hole in the roof of the building during a copper theft.
But investigators later determined that the man had jumped "to commit suicide," Detective Tye Bell said in a news release.
Police were continuing to investigate Tuesday, and the Tarrant County medical examiner was notifying next of kin.
