ACADIA NATIONAL PARK - The body of an Ohio man was found Sunday morning off Route 233 after he apparently had told a friend he intended to commit suicide, according to a park ranger.
Benjamin A. Ellis, 21, of Granville, Ohio, died from what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Ranger Dustin Warner said Sunday afternoon.
"We found the body on top of Great Hill at 10 a.m.," Warner said.
Park officials were still working Sunday afternoon to remove Ellis' body from the top of the hill, which is just north of Route 233 and to the west of the Park Loop Road, the ranger said.
Ellis' car was spotted Friday parked at the gated Park Loop Road entrance on Route 233, but park officials did not realize anything was amiss until the next day, when a ranger noted the vehicle was still in the same spot.
