A man found dead on the Montrose Dog Beach last month on the North Side committed suicide, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A Chicago Park District employee found the man about 3:30 a.m. June 2 on the shore of the dog-friendly area off the 500 block of West Montrose, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Jeremiah Harrison, 26, was dead at the scene, according to the medical examiner’s office. He lived in the Uptown neighborhood.

An autopsy did not immediately rule on his cause and manner of death pending a police report, but on Tuesday, the medical examiners office said he died of multiple incise wounds, and the death was ruled a suicide.

Area North detectives are investigating.
