It's a clever ploy to flush out the murderer, who will be so insulted at the lack of recognition that he'll start blogging about how stupid the police were for not seeing exactly how he'd killed the guy.

To play devil's advocate, since most insurance companies won't pay out for a suicide, I could see staging your suicide to look like a murder.

Although it could also backfire and the police might think your spouse murdered you for the insurance.

The mistake is letting them find the body. Amateurs.

Police found the body of 52-year-old Glynn County Commissioner Tom Sublett early on Dec. 11 in the water beside a docked boat on St. Simons Island. His wallet was in his back pocket and still contained his driver's license and credit cards. An empty gun holster and a magazine loaded with 9mm bullets were found in Sublett's car nearby, but no gun was recovered.

Where did it go? Guns don't float nor do they move on their own accord. If it was a suicide, wouldn't the gun be nearby?

He tied it to a balloon, so it floated away after he shot himself.

I wonder how much turning a murder into a suicide costs nowadays.

Maybe he accidentally, brutally stabbed himself in the stomach while shaving.

Actually, what a brilliant life insurance plot. It won't cover suicide, so you pull a rural cobain and rig it so that you fall in the lake with your hands bound after being shot. Might have to be a little clever with the rigging, but it's not unimaginable.Naturally, it's kindof hard not to assume homicide in that case, and voila! Your family gets a check.

If it was a suicide then the depressed person sure is looking for insurance money or just wants to fark with the corner.

/Suicide with a gun, fall into a lake to destroy evidence, hands tied, go down trolling bro.

FTA:


An empty gun holster and a magazine loaded with 9mm bullets were found in Sublett's car nearby, but no gun was recovered.

And some evidence seems to contradict evidence that Sublett killed himself. Durden confirmed Friday that Sublett's hands were bound in front of him when police found his body.


Great police work.

If he had a gunshot to the head - then in most likelihood, he would no longer be breathing; then when he fell in the water, how could he drown? Unless he was still breathing when he entered the water.  To drown, one must breathing.

If the first shot hits the wrong part of the brain, then the coward that commits suicide is not lying in a coma in a hospital waiting to die.

Gabriel Giffords was hit with a 9mm right in the skull, still living.  It's possible.

I suspect a competent ME would know whether he had water in his lungs and also if it matched the water he was in. I seem to remember frothy bubbles have something to do with drowning or the like, too.
If the ME was as equally competent as the police then we'll probably never know the truth.

Kinda bullshiat that they're potentially doing an insurance company a favor by ruling it a suicide when it actually leans more towards murder.
Why is it a farked up story?  Because cops.

A gunshot to the head, even at close range, doesn't mean instantly dead.

This is an interesting story, and I hope they had more information that they aren't releasing that led them to determine that this was a suicide.

I remember my uncle telling me about a guy he worked with was found dead in his living room, due to a self-inflicted gunshot.  It was ruled an accident, because the weapon was partially disassembled, but still functional (he had taken off some of the mostly cosmetic pieces and laid them out on a newspaper), and an open gun cleaning kit.

"Guess he didn't realize it was still loaded."  Although the guy was a former Marine and an experienced hunter.

On the flipside, I've heard that supposedly a large number of teenage boys committing suicide by hanging aren't actually suicides.  It's auto-erotic asphyxiation, and I guess the parents hide the porn and put his clothes back on before they call 911.

I guess suicide is less embarrassing to the family, than your son accidentally killing himself jerking off.

Take a trip to the Grand Canyon, along the way borrow somebody's boot, put a little oil/grease on the sole, and put a big boot print in the back of your jacket.  When you get to the Canyon, wait till nobody's looking and throw yourself over the edge.  When they find your broken fleshbag at the bottom, it'll look like somebody kicked you over.

It's a good thing Jessica Fetcher is leaving her native soils of Cabot Cove this weekend to visit her nephew Jeff down in Savannah. I suspect she'll run into the sheriff running this case.

Oh, she'll be reluctant to help out at first, but she'll notice something about the case that just doesn't make sense, but that she can't yet put her finger on . . .

"You're not suggesting, Jessica . . . "

"That's right, sheriff. The commissioner's death wasn't a suicide. It was murder. The question is: who?"

All that and more, tonight, on Murder, She Wrote.

This way we know it was not a crime, but a really smart suicide. Now they can focus on controlling crime through breaking up loud keggers and finding drunk drivings driving over the limit at .085. Do you see any profit in playing CSI checking the dna on that random hair.

You should check out their crime stats.
