The Napa County Coroner's office has identified the young man found dead near Buhman Park Saturday as a 20-year-old.

The Register is declining to report the man's identity in keeping with its policy for suicides.

The man was found hanging in a tree in the backyard of a home across Napa Creek from Buhman Park in Browns Valley, said Capt. Steve Blower. 

Napa Police said the death was discovered shortly before 5 p.m. Saturday by several children who were playing along the park's creek border. The initial report had the death occurring in the park.
