The construction of Houston’s new football stadium, which is slated to be ready for the season opener against the University of Texas – San Antonio on Aug. 29, was halted Monday after a body was found at the construction site.
"All indications are that this was a suicide," a university spokesman told the Houston Chronicle early Monday afternoon.
A construction worker discovered the body around 7:30 a.m. in the southwest corner of the stadium. Construction will not resume in that corner of the stadium until the investigation concludes.
Progress on the rest of the stadium will continue as scheduled.
