"Jackson's death came about a month after Schweich shot himself on Feb. 26 at his home in the St. Louis suburb of Clayton.
Schweich's suicide took place only moments after he had set up an interview with the Associated Press and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, according to those news organizations."
"Schweich had announced plans to run for governor of Missouri in 2016. After the auditor's death, Jackson called for Hancock's resignation.
Police in Jefferson City and Clayton have been in contact as they investigate Jackson’s suicide, law enforcement officials said at a news conference Monday. Several items were removed from Jackson’s apartment, though law enforcement officials declined to elaborate. "

I saw this on local news this am, the guy clearly looks full of life, not a suicidal maniac.
Something is so wrong with this , far too many concerns for our immediate future.

It's a weird thing. How on earth do you kill someone when his own wife was at home? Either she was in on it, or they were really good.
The local talkers think this thing stinks, especially the way it's all being blamed on a radio smear ad. Now his spokesman is dead too? And yes, this was originally blamed on him being upset over a nasty House of Cards themed radio ad.
Of course, MO politics is a dirty business, but it's interesting how this is all hearsay on the Republican Party. That doesn't mean they're innocent, but as the auditor, Schweik would have been in a position to know all sorts of dirty financial dealings for both sides of the aisle. What he might have dug up and on whom, we will likely never know and his spokesman's death ensures it, but it could have been anyone in the state from either or both parties.
