A man hanged himself outside a Veterans of Foreign Wars post early Wednesday, just hours after he apparently burned American and POW-MIA flags in the same place, authorities said.
A passer-by found the man around 1 a.m. Wednesday. He was dressed in civilian clothes and found hanging by the flagpole rope, Detective James Hall said.
He has been identified at Bobby Neal Hall Jr., 35, of Lancaster, who worked for a Winchester construction company, according to Detective James Hall.
Police also released Bobby Hall's photograph, and are asking anyone who knows his whereabouts after 10 p.m. Tuesday to contact police.
