  1. Well, frankly, I think they don’t have any evidence of a murder, so they are just calling it a suicide. He was a single adoptive father. I know he had a lot of debt, but I find it hard to believe that he would have tied himself to a tree, taped on his own glasses, written the words, and then hung himself. I don’t know, maybe I am wrong, but it still doesn’t add up to me.

  2. News reports: DNA only from Sparkman, words written from an upside-down vantage point, legs touching ground, lividity evidence, $600,000 in life insurance taken out in 2008 and May 2009, discussed suicide with friend.
