Posted by wlpo on January 5, 2013

A 25-year olds death in Ottawa has been officially ruled a suicide.

Ottawa Police got a call New Year’s Eve morning from a man who said he was going to jump from Veteran’s Bridge.  By time officers arrived, 25-year old Ryan Poundstone had already jumped, leaving behind his sweatshirt on the sidewalk of the bridge.

Ottawa River Rescue pulled Poundstone from the Illinois River.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.
