A 41-year-old man found dead in some bushes near a San Mateo shopping center Sunday morning appears to have taken his own life, a police  captain said Tuesday.
   
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.

Quon was last seen leaving 24-Hour Fitness between midnight and 2 a.m.  His body wasn't found for several hours.  People on the scene said it appeared he had been stabbed.
