A 43-year-old man found dead in a Bolingbrook parking lot appears to be a suicide, officials said.

A hazardous materials alert was called after a suspicious object was seen near the man's body in a car in the 1200 block of West Boughton Road Tuesday night, but it turned out to be a helium tank, authorities said.

Bolingbrook police were initially asked to help locate the man, who had lived in Naperville and was considered to be suicidal, police said.

They found the man in the parking lot of a strip mall. He was pronounced dead at 10:55 p.m.

An autopsy is scheduled for later today, according to the Will County coroner’s office.
