Man Commits Suicide Beneath CTA Tracks

By Laura Pearson | Tuesday, August 31, 2010

The incident occurred on the 2400 block of W. Eastwood.

Yesterday morning the Chicago Police Department received a call reporting a suicide by hanging at 2446 W. Eastwood Ave.

According to the CPD, a local man hanged himself beneath the train tracks at the base of the CTA platform.

A Center Square Journal reader who lives on the 2500 block of West Eastwood reported, “As we were all walking our children to [Queen of Angels Elementary] school, the sirens came to find what many people had unfortunately already seen?a body hanging from the CTA brown line tracks in the alley.”

This neighbor said the sirens sounded at 8:15 a.m.

The man was identified by the medical examiner’s office as Joseph Barazowski, 39. He lived on the 800 block of West Belle Plaine Avenue.

    Whoa……..that’s too close. Like 500 feet from my house. I didn’t drive thru the alley yesterday like i usually do otherwise i would have seen him. Sad. Hopefully it was just suicide and he wasn’t killed.

    I think its scary. When stuff like this happens, people start seeing the deceased’s ghost hanging in the same place or walking nearby. I don’t want to see this dead guy walking around in the alley. Its already creepy in that alley. Don’t be surprised to start hearing things in the neighborhood.
