ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Employees at a northwest Albany business made a disturbing discovery when they showed up for work Thursday morning.

They found a co-worker dead from suicide.

About 8:20 Police were called to the American Lube Fast in the 2300 block of North Slappey.

Employees found 46-year-old Kenneth Riley hanged, with a rope tied to the railing around the oil pit.

Coroner's investigators say Riley was last seen about 7:00 Wednesday night, when the business closed.

Riley left a couple of notes, explaining that he had personal problems.
