Mystery writer Eugene Izzi's death by hanging last month has been ruled a suicide, consigning to fiction a theory that he was murdered by a subject of one of his books, authorities said Thursday. The Cook County medical examiner ruled late Wednesday that Izzi, 43, hanged himself by a rope outside his downtown office on Dec. 7. An anti-depressant drug was found in his system and he was known to be undergoing therapy for depression.

Mystery writer Eugene Izzi, who was found hanged from his office window in a downtown high-rise a month ago, left an unpublished novel whose hero nearly dies the same way, a newspaper reported Wednesday. The Chicago Tribune, citing unidentified sources, said the FBI found the manuscript on computer discs discovered in Izzi's pockets Dec. 7. Like Izzi, the novel's central character is a Chicago mystery writer with a 14th-floor office, the newspaper said. Each is hanged in a similar manner.

For a crime writer who dispensed death to his characters with clinical street realism, Guy Izzi died against type. His body was found on a cold Chicago morning, dangling from the window ledge of his 14th-floor office overlooking the expanse of Grant Park.

The oldest and most prolific soccer franchise in the United States is practicing on a tennis court. Carpet covers the asphalt. Wooden boards surround the baselines. The San Diego Sockers are young and shaggy-haired and laugh easily as soccer balls leave their feet and clang into one of the goals. Clang , because the goal is a chain-link fence. Later, they will walk past courts still used for tennis, lock their cars and leave the neighborhood as prostitutes are arriving.
