This is a predatory Robber Fly in the genus Diogmites, whose members are called Hanging Thieves. Normally we do not attempt species identifications on Hanging Thieves, but your individual has a more robust body and some distinctive markings, and be believe based on this BugGuide image that it is Diogmites basalis.
