Authorities Say Kentucky Census Worker Committed Suicide

WASHINGTON — When Kentucky Census Bureau worker William E. Sparkman was found dead in September — with the word “FED” scrawled on his chest — everyone assumed the obvious: He was murdered.

Not so,  state and federal investigators said Tuesday.

The Washington Post reported that authorities believe Sparkman committed suicide. He was found in eastern Kentucky, his hands, feet and mouth loosely bound with duct tape and a rope loosely tied around his neck, the paper reported.

Investigators concluded that he had written “FED” on his chest. People told investigators he was suicidal, the Post reported.

What’s more, shortly before his death, he had taken out two life insurance policies totaling $600,000, which would not pay out for suicide, the Post reported. The money reportedly was to go to his son.
