Census Worker Made Suicide Look Like Homicide for Insurance Payoff?

I guess they'll quietly drop this from the narrative.

Two law enforcement officials, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, said investigators were trying to determine whether Bill Sparkman committed suicide but altered the scene to make it look like a homicide, allowing his son to collect.

Life insurance policies typically do not cover suicides within a certain time period after the policy begins.

Sad, in so many ways.

I thought this gentleman was the first casualty of the Whiskey Rebellion 2K9.

Suicide is not covered for two years after policy inception. Get is straight folks. Somebody should ask how long his policy was in force.
