A body was found in the service area of a parking garage near the Shands Cancer Hospital on SW 13th Street, according to University Police Department Major Brad Barber.

He said it appeared the body had fallen from an upper level of the garage.

The body was reported to the Gainesville Police Department at about 1:30 p.m., he said. Police are working on contacting the victim’s relatives.

Barber said the investigation will determine whether the death was a suicide.

“I will say, however, at this time we have no indication of foul play,” Barber said.
