Vernon Deputies Talk Down Suicidal Man

Vernon Sheriff Sam Craft says a deputy was able to talk down a suicidal man over the weekend. His name is not revealed, and he’s been sent for evaluation and treatment.

The man approached an acquaintance with a large knife and a rope, indicating he intended to harm himself. Deputies found him up in a tree, with one end of the rope around his neck and the opposite one tied to a limb above his head. The sheriff says deputies convinced him to untie the rope, climb down, and turn over the knife to them.
