This actually a continuation of the simple comment below about copying to other newspapers.
The death was reported in newspaper and death notice as 'shot gun to heart' listed as suicide.
I am not a gun expect but I have used a shotgun skeet shooting. I don't think my arms are long enough to shoot myself in the heart. Did he use his toe?
I know this is terrible but there is a lot about this death that bothers me. He was in the bathroom and left the tub water running which alerted the neighbors below when it flooded them out.
He also had a large diamond stick pin according to the newspaper. I found a relative who said her engagement ring had a large diamond passed down through the family but no one would give her further information.
