Suspicions–Death by Tree?

This death is very suspicious in my opinion.  I did some Googling.http://www.thv11.com/news/local/ark-man-found-dead-with-foot-stuck-in-tree/225027420

and in case that link dies,

BAXTER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) – The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation into the death of an Izard County man.
The body of 27-year-old Weldon G. Speirs II of Horseshoe Bend  was discovered by a family member Sunday morning in a wooded area near Wild Fern Ln, near the border between Baxter County and Izard County off State Highway 5 South.
The victim was suspended upside down in a large cedar tree.  It appeared the victim’s foot had become lodged and tightly stuck in a crevice in the tree, and he had been unable to free himself.
The family of the victim had reported him missing on Friday, May 27 to the Izard County Sheriff’s Office and to Baxter County Sheriff’s Office on May 28.  The victim had been visiting a friend on Wild Fern Ln, and his vehicle was still parked there.  It is not known why he had gone into the woods.
The body of the victim was removed by the Baxter County Coroner’s Office.  The decedent is being sent to the Arkansas State Medical Examiner’s Office in Little Rock for autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.  All immediate indications are that the death was accidental.  The investigation will remain open awaiting the results from the autopsy.

The gentleman worked as a first mate on a tugboat.  He was  a young man, fit looking, rather tall,  but he gets his foot stuck in a tree?  Really?

It was a large cedar tree.  Aren’t those trees rather brushy?

He was visiting a friend.  His car was found parked near the friend’s home.  It is not known why he went into the woods.  What time of day did he leave the friend’s home?   Sober? Armed?  Did he own a drone?

It makes sense to put a body in a cedar tree if it’s a brushy specimen because the dense foliage would hide it very well.

There are a lot of bigfoot reports from this area.  I am wondering if this is one of those cases in which sasquatch prey is found up a tree or telephone pole, like in the video of the Big Thicket area camp  that Bob Garrett discovered.

This area is lovely but rugged, a  terrain of hills, creeks, and rivers with big patches of dense forest of mixed deciduous and evergreen trees.  Many springs and caverns dot this part of Arkansas.
