To the extent that one of the initial news reports indicated the dealership was in the process of closing down, my first suspicion was the death was the result of a suicide attempt.

The latest news report, however, reaffirms that the case is being investigated as a homicide and that the dealer was found in the garage area of the Service Department with a gunshot wound to the chest. The body was discovered at 6:30 a.m.

Here's another news update: http://ozarksfirst.com/content/fulltext/?cid=131631

The death continues to be investigated as a homicide and there were comments about finding "broken glass" at the dealership when the police were making their requests for search warrants.

I watched the video - it appears that the Dealer Principal was very involved in his community and well respected.

Default Investigation continues - nothing has been ruled out

The latest news reports indicate the police investigation continues and nothing has been ruled out. Police would not rule out either a homicide or suicide at this point.
