Circumstances of Discovery

The decedent was found in a heavily wooded area near the Cambria Cemetery. He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.

No vehicle was found in the area where the body was discovered.

His remains were exhumed on August 19, 2008, and a bone sample submitted for DNA extraction. His remains are in custody of the Sheriff's Office.
