The Ithaca City Police Department has temporarily closed the suspension bridge and the Stewart Avenue Bridge after a witness reported seeing a man jump off the suspension bridge. Other witnesses found an unattended jacket and backpack containing a wallet, cell phone and other personal possessions on the suspension bridge. Police arrived on the scene around 3:45 p.m. and are currently investigating the situation.

This incident follows yesterday’s discovery of a body underneath the Thurston Avenue Bridge in the Fall Creek Gorge. The body was confirmed to be William Sinclair ’12.
