Investigators are looking into the death of a 10-year-old boy who was found hanging from a clothesline in North Minneapolis.

It happened behind an abandoned home on the 3200 block of Bryant Avenue North.

Police say neighbors found the boy, who was visiting from Georgia, hanging from a wire attached to a clothesline Thursday.

He died from his injuries Monday night.

Investigators are now reaching out to other children in the neighborhood who may have been playing with the boy to try to learn what led to his death.
