Hospital staffers found a Fort Payne man unresponsive in his car Sunday outside DeKalb Regional Medical Center that police believe is a suicide case.

Emergency technicians found Mark Steven Goodwin, 44, in his car and removed him to begin life-saving efforts. He was later pronounced dead.

Fort Payne Police Chief Randy Bynum said the death is an apparent suicide, but Goodwin’s body was sent to a state forensics lab in Huntsville for autopsy to be certain.
