Louisiana Mayor's Shooting Death Sparks Controversy

Regarding the Mayor Washington shooting:

The facts:

No reason given as to why Washington would have killed himself.
No suicide note was found.
No evidence he gave farewell to anyone,
No evidence he put his financial affairs in order,
Shot himself in the chest (unusual for a suicide) and not in the head
No evidence he gave any indication he was about to kill himself, per the authorities.
Mayor Washington had just ordered a new mayoral letterhead with his name on it
Mayor Washington had just ordered a new button-down shirt embroidered "Gerald Washington, Mayor." Not the actions of a man about to kill himself.
Investigation of a Mayor, who was shot, closed within 2 days

I am not a part of law enforcement and know enough to know this does not add up. Someone shot this man and the evidence seems to punch holes all through a suicide case.

The Justice Department/FBI needs to get involved. From around the country we will all keep our eye on this case.
