I passed this scene just before 4a.m. There where roughly 7-8 police cars from various cities, they appeared to be in the begining stages of processing the scene. THEY SAY HE COMMETED SUICIDE. But I swear I saw evidence markers next to shell casings on the ground. The front and side windows of the car (Escort Stationwagon) had tarps covering them. If he killed himself in the car, then why where there bullet casings on the ground 15 or so feet away from the car . I could have scene things wrong, but growing up in the city I feel that I have a good set of eyes. I find this all suspect.
