Census Worker Bill Sparkman: Suicide Suspected
h/t JL in email. Sad, of course. It seems police are increasingly less convinced Census worker Bill Sparkman met with foul play due to his government job. While not yet drawing conclusions, suicide is said to be the way their investigation is going. Don't wait to the Left to care. They got their mileage out of the guy. It isn't as if they actually carted about him at all.
WASHINGTON — Investigators probing the death of a Kentucky census worker found hanging from a tree with the word "fed" scrawled on his chest increasingly doubt he was killed because of his government job and are pursuing the possibility he committed suicide, law enforcement officials told The Associated Press.
Two officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, said no final conclusions have been made in the case. In recent weeks, however, investigators have grown more skeptical that 51-year-old Bill Sparkman died at the hands of someone angry at the federal government.
The officials said investigators continue to look closely at suicide as a possible cause of Sparkman's death for a number of reasons. There were no defensive wounds on Sparkman's body, and while his hands were bound with duct-tape, they were still somewhat mobile, suggesting he could have manipulated the rope, the officials said.
