Hanging victim identified as Lancaster man

The man whose body was found hanging in a field Thursday in a remote area of Bouquet Canyon Road near Agua Dulce has been identified as 53-year-old Michael Husher of Lancaster. Sarah Ardalani, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner, said an autopsy confirmed his death to be a suicide by hanging. The man’s body was found along Bouquet at mile marker 13.75, near the Sierra Pelona Truck Trail. “Some off-roading person came across the body,” Lt. Ignacio Somoano of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said Thursday, noting a car was found in the same area. [email protected] 661-287-5527 On Twitter @jamesarthurholt
