Breaking: KY investigators say Census worker likely killed himself

Via AP:

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Authorities are saying a Kentucky census worker found hanging from a tree with “fed” scrawled on his chest committed suicide and staged his death to look like a homicide.

A news release from Kentucky State Police said Tuesday that Bill Sparkman died at the same location where his body was found Sept. 12 near a cemetery in a heavily wooded area of southeastern Kentucky.

A man who found the body in the Daniel Boone National Forest said the 51-year-old was bound with duct tape, gagged and had an identification badge taped to his neck.

Investigators say Sparkman acted alone in manipulating the scene to conceal the suicide.

The news release says Sparkman had recently taken out two life insurance policies that would not pay out for suicide.

I know this won’t stop the far left from believing that Sparkman was murdered by an fringe nut on the right (as part of an overall “conservatives are crazy” narrative they’ve been trying to set all year), but I’m beyond caring anymore about their shameless attempts at using this man’s death for political gain. Whether it was murder or suicide, Sparkman’s family still suffers, and will be without him at the dinner table for the holidays. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Related: Bill Jacobson has a list of some of the lefty bloggers who rushed to smear conservatives over Sparkman’s death, and wonders who will be the first to stand up and apologize.

I won’t hold my breath.

    “He was murdered,” Weaver said. “There’s no doubt.”

    Yeah, only…not.

    It’s the way leftists look at the world; in absolutes.
    Absolute power.
    Absolute elitism.

    Obviously the police are part of the vast right wing conspiracy and are covering up vital evidence and the truth to protect the war mongering, racist, Islamaphobic, homophobic, global warming denying, poor hating right wing fascists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oops, sorry. I meant to post that at the Huffington Post.

    NC Cop, did you see the comments on this story today at Huffpo? I went over and was not surprised. The great majority of them believe, and state, basically what you just jokingly stated, only in all seriousness.

    That this is a coverup by the police, that Sparkman was still killed by rightwinger hicks, that this is all a ruse. THEY WANT THEIR REICHSTAG FIRE DAMMIT! Oh, well, they think, maybe next week one of us will succeed at acting like a Rightwinger-acting-badly. “Good try, though, Bill!”

    These people live in an alternate reality.

    What do you bet Sparkman discussed doing this via e-mail with others? “Well, Bill, if you’re so keen on offing yourself, why not do one for The Cause? Here’s what you do, and where…..”

    These people have to convince the country that the Right is SO BAD, SO EVIL, that they will do the evil deed themselves, even to the point of death.

    Remember the Paulian who “became” a Republican alluvasudden and carved a “B” on her face? Real-life moby, yet another. Look for more of these. These people would shoot people just to get guns banned. These people would kill abortionists while carrying Coulter and Hannity books in their pockets just to make us believe that the Right is evil. These are the same people, who, time and time again, have been caught hanging “nooses” in their own offices and then screaming to the MSM about hate-crimes, and it is later revealed that they did it themselves.

    This is who we are up against.

    Ashley Todd was her name. Google it, you will see that the ruse WORKED. Even today, all the mainstream accounts (and hard left sites, but that’s a fine line) they all parrot that she was a “McCain Supporter”, and it successfully tarnished the Right.

    What the accounts don’t mention is that just prior to becoming a McCain supporter, she was a Ron Paul supporter. You know, the people who cheated every single online poll they could find, and discussed openly ways of cheating media polls to make Ron Paul look popular? Yeah, those deception-loving folks. She was a Moby, and her double-ruse was successful.

    Just wait until 2010, when half or more of the “Republicans” are actually working on behalf of the Democrats. They are just now starting to understand how important “infiltration” is. e.g. Scozzafava, John McCain (who, IMO, would have been the first to demand a recount if it were him that somehow won despite all the fraud…he wasn’t in this to win, he was pretending to run, so that Obama would be uncontested. The whole election was a fix, mark my words…McCain has always done ONLY for the Democrats while calling himself Republican. Why would 2004 be different? That and it was obvious. The man praised Obama publicly more than Obama himself. McCain did everything but stump for Obama and put a bumpersticker on his car.)

    Look for more entry-ism and real-life mobys in the weeks and months to come. If an abortionist gets shot, you’d do well to look for the shooter’s nic registrations at Kos and Huffpo. They need this, badly, so they can take care of the “Conservative Problem”. (Someone in the 30’s had a “Jewish Problem”, IIRC, and they had the same spiritual father as these moonbats today. Same philosophies on old folks, the invalids, Christians, Jews, and babies, too…no coincidence.)

    Sister Toldjah, thank you for allowing me to elbow my way in and rant like that. I won’t make a habit of that. :D

    This is a good site, and I come here from, which, if you don’t know, is a small aggregator, 15 blogs and some vids all on a page. You are one of the 15, and in good company.

    This story from the beginning reminded me of a joke back in the 60s about the black man found in a ditch in the south bound with 10 feet of chain, 20 feet of rope, 17 knife wounds and 5 gunshots to the head. The good ol’ boy sheriff says casually, “Yep. Worst case of suicide I ever did see.”

    I suspect it was either a moonshiner (maybe?) or some of his life-loving leftist buddies out to prove what NC jokingly suggested. One thing’s for sure: it wasn’t done by your average VRWC member (also known as a terrorist to J. Napolitano.)
