The death of Jack Quon, whose body was discovered around 8 a.m. in the bushes in the unit block of Bovet Road near the Borel Square Shopping Center, was initially investigated as a homicide but authorities have since concluded it was a suicide, San Mateo police Capt. Kevin Raffaelli said.

Quon reportedly mailed a letter to a family member Saturday that explained his intent to end his life. Authorities this morning confirmed Quon wrote the letter and officially deemed his death a suicide, according to Raffaelli.
