Police provide no details on Davlin's death - Springfield, IL - The State Journal-Register

Illinois State Police were tight-lipped Tuesday afternoon on the discovery of Springfield Mayor Tim Davlin's body in his home at 2604 Apple Creek Drive.

Davlin, 53, reportedly died of an apparent gunshot wound, but authorities would not confirm that at a news conference this morning. Officials also wouldn’t say who made the 911 call.

Davlin did not show up for a court-ordered appearance this morning in a pending estate case involving his late cousin.

Where on the page do you see the word "suicide"?

I guess "assumed" would be a good word.
After reading the entire story, I would guess suicide as well.
Sounds like there were some financial problems with that estate he was administering as well as in his personal life.

Some wealthy people can't fathom being "not wealthy".

What is the o.p.'s point/motive for posting this? I have a radio and I have sources of news on the Internet. I truly hope it isn't the fact that the deceased is a Democrat... ... awww... that's it isn't it... ... just once, really, just once, could one of you go against type and show some humanity.

Isn't it pathetic?

What kind of warped mind thinks it worth starting a thread about some poor soul who may have committed suicide? And apparently thinks being a Democrat had some significance?

My condolences to his family. Killing yourself is only doing your enemies a favor. Killing them is preferable.
