Some reason why I do think it was a suicide:

1. told a friend about it a week beforehand
2. 'FED" was written from bottom to top
3. feet were on the ground
4. hands were loosely bound
5. $600K life insurance policy (although i do find it odd that his son, and not his wife, was the beneficiary)

Sparkman's wrists were bound with duct tape, and a rope around his neck was tied to a tree, but his body was touching the ground, authorities said. He had "Fed" written on his chest in black ink.

However, Sparkman's wrists were loosely bound in front of his body at shoulder width apart, allowing for "considerable mobility," said Kentucky State Police Capt. Lisa Rudzinski.

He was also in contact with the ground, "almost on his knees," she said.

"To survive, all Mr. Sparkman had to do was stand up."

"He was also in contact with the ground, 'almost on his knees,' she said. Lividity on the body -- marks made as blood stops pumping and settles in areas of the body -- showed that Sparkman died in the same position, Rudzinski said."

How can you hang yourself when a part of your body is in contact with the ground? What does 'almost on his knees' mean? What part of his body was touching the ground if it wasn't his knees?

"In addition, he told a "credible witness" of his plans to commit suicide and stage the scene to make it look like he was slain because he worked for the federal government."

If this witness is so credible, why is he anonymous? Is this "credible witness" afraid that the deceased might come back from the dead and harm him because he blew the whistle on him post mortem?
