Snippet AP Article :::
WASHINGTON — A U.S. Census worker found hanged from a tree near a Kentucky cemetery had the word "fed" scrawled on his chest, a law enforcement official said Wednesday, and the FBI is investigating whether he was a victim of anti-government sentiment.The law enforcement official, who was not authorized to discuss the case and requested anonymity, did not say what type of instrument was used to write the word on the chest of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and teacher. He was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky.
The Census has suspended door-to-door interviews in rural Clay County, where the body was found, pending the outcome of the investigation. An autopsy report is pending.
Investigators have said little about the case. FBI spokesman David Beyer said the bureau is assisting state police and declined to confirm or discuss any details about the crime scene.
Our job is to determine if there was foul play involved — and that's part of the investigation — and if there was foul play involved, whether that is related to his employment as a Census worker," said Beyer.
Enigma Thought: I am sorry but Someone has to Evaluate For FOUL PLAY- He was HANGED and FED was Engraved on the Body- what are they going to call it - Natural Circumstances ???
Attacking a federal worker during or because of his federal job is a federal crime.Sparkman's mother, Henrie Sparkman of Inverness, Fla., told The Associated Press her son was an Eagle scout who moved to the area to be a local director for the Boy Scouts of America. She said he later became a substitute teacher in Laurel County and supplemented that income as a Census worker.
She said investigators have given her few details about her son's death — they told her the body was decomposed — and haven't yet released his body for burial. "I was told it would be better for him to be cremated," she said.
On another aspect of this :
(1) Glenn Beck and Michelle Bachman have indeed been harping on the Evil of Census Workers all summer, More HERE from Media Matters starting in June 2009.
(2) As someone who lives in Ohio, I can tell you that when Sarah Palin and McCain came through here and Kentucky last summer- that the Census was one of the things they trashed....and they stoked the hate fires all over this area....especially Palin.
(3) HuffingtonPost did a great job covering this and we know they will closely follow it.
From Rachel Maddows Show 9.23.09
Huffington Post has more about how the body was found details about his death that are concerning. Including how he was ductaped at hands and feet, and his ID badge was taped to him. There is no way this was or is a suicide.
