Well his wife heard him cry out, so I'm guessing he just kind of made a noise or something, which is consistent with falling. If someone simply
starts to fall I wouldn't think their first impulse would be to yell "help." The reason I bring this up is because if you saw someone coming at you
with a weapon or something, you might be tempted to actually say something else. Not definitive by any means, but I think someone might say "no," or
"stop," or something like that, which they would not say while falling most likely.
So if his wife heard him cry out and then immediately went to investigate, apparently she saw nothing suspicious. Nobody fleeing the scene or
anything, no car speeding off, etc. So it is probably true that he just fell. When you get older like that a fall is more likely to cause serious
injury than it would to a younger person. Plus, an older person is more likely to fall anyway. I do not think a politician would risk killing an
opponent in a race, although I would expect some of them to use any other means necessary, but not violence. Not saying it couldn't or even hasn't
happened, but I think it would be rare because obviously you don't want to go to such lengths to get into office if you are not going to stay there
long due to a criminal investigation or conviction.
