Allegheny Township police say a West Leechburg man missing since Wednesday was found dead Friday in a township cemetery, the victim of an apparent suicide.

Police did not immediately identify the man but described him as middle-aged.

The Valley News Dispatch does not report suicides unless they occur in a public place or manner.

Police Chief John Fontaine said he discovered the body at about 4:30 p.m. in an area where supplies are stored at the Pleasant Hill Cemetery, at 751 Pleasant Hill Road. Fontaine was at the cemetery because he serves as a caretaker there.

An official with the Westmoreland County Coroner's Office said the man apparently shot himself.

No further investigation is planned.
