COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A construction worker found dead Wednesday probably killed himself, the Montgomery County Coroner said Friday.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office says Rafael Cruz was found dead in a mobile home along U.S. Route 36 Tuesday with a knife wound to the neck. Police were initially unsure if it was self-inflicted.

Wednesday morning Cruz’s coworkers came here to pick him up, found him in the back bedroom, and called 911. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
