Mel Gibson feels "terrible" that a construction worker hung himself on his property, according to a rep, TMZ reports.

A construction worker was found hanging on a structure at the Oscar-winning director’s Agoura Hills home on Tuesday morning. Believed to be a suicide, the body of the worker, who has yet to be identified, was discovered "in full rigor mortis."

Mel has not yet lived on the property and thus was not at home when the death occurred or when the body was discovered.

The new house is less than a mile from his church, The Holy Family Catholic Church, where Mel’s daughter was married in September 2006.
