A Wilton man was found dead on Sunny Lane at approximately 12:16 p.m. Saturday, in what police are calling a suicide.

The man, identified by police as Joseph P. Wirsing, 58, was found on the ground in front of a

vehicle on Sunny Lane outside of Camp Mahackeno. A handgun was recovered near his body.

An autopsy performed Monday by the State

Medical Examiner's Office determined that Wirsing died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

Police were initially called to the scene on report of a person with a gun.

"It's still being investigated, so I wouldn't be at a liberty to discuss any further details about what's going on with the case," said Lt. Sam Arciola of the Westport Police Department.
