Investigation in Bryan Glenn Death Closed
Glenn family asks for patience and respect.
Fairfax County Police are no longer investigating the death of W.T. Woodson High School student Bryan Glenn.
The Virginia Medical Examiner's office ruled the manner and cause of Glenn's death as suicide by hanging. No more details are available to the public.
"The report is new and we are just now reviewing it," said Bryan's father, Mike Glenn. "We ask for patience and respect for our family's privacy. As everyone can imagine, this has been an extraordinarily difficult time for our family and Bryan's friends. We want to continue to be respectful of the investigation process and are thankful for the work being done by law enforcement."
The ruling comes after a months-long wait for residents of Fairfax City, who have remained heartbroken and without many answers after Glenn was found dead off a trail in Thaiss Park after a week-long disappearance in October.
The 17-year-old was found dead by volunteers in the woods near Thaiss Park on Pickett Road in mid-October, days after his car was also found near the park.
At the time the body was located, Fairfax County Police said there was no reason to believe the public was in danger.
Now the investigation is closed. It may be reopened if any substantial information becomes available, said MPO Eduardo Azcarate of the Fairfax County Police Department.
