Tanisha Turner says she doesn't believe her uncle Eddie Clark committed suicide."He always looked out for other people," Turner said. "He just was so full of life. So full of life."

The 51-year-old East Texas man was found Sunday hanging from a bush near the Good Shepherd Medical Center in Marshall, but family members say Clark wasn't depressed and never wore a belt.

"He was funny," Turner said. "He always kept everyone laughing. He would give you the shirt off his back."

Clark had recently been released from custody with the Harrison County Sheriff's Office, arrested for criminal mischief and ttrespassingSome family members say they hadn't even seen him before they got a call about his death.

Clark's family stopped the cremation process so they can have a private autopsy and prayed Friday evening that someone comes forward with information.

"We're asking anyone with information to come forward who may have seen him on the day he was released from jail, which would have been this Thursday," Det. Sonya Johnson said.

If you saw Clark after his release Aug. 21, call MPD at (903) 935-4575
