this was a suicide.

Gerald Washington shot himself

no other forensic evidence exists to prove otherwise.

Sad, but true.

It is a shame that this could not be accepted for what it was, a depressed man with problems who took a permanent solution to temporary problems. Now all is known and it is without question! Very sorry to hear it. Seems like this man was liked by all who knew him!

He really was liked by all. We all have our problems and but by the Grace of God go I...The sad thing is people who do not live anywhere near here -- as well as those who do -- and don't have the slightest idea of how well-thought of "Wash" was, have tried to make it a race issue and it was ANYTHING but that. The family cried because the sheriff's dept. did a sloppy job -- bullcrap -- they wanted it to be handed over to the LSP, whose head man is African-American -- LSP came to the exact conclusion -- still weren't satisfied. Took a collection to send off for yet a third autopsy -- REALLY -- what new can one find out over 2 months after a person's passing? For God's sake -- call a spade, a spade!
