Missouri Is Mourning The Death of Auditor Tom Schweich

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  Missouri is mourning the death of Auditor Tom Schweich.  According to investigators, police responded on Thursday morning to a call of a gunshot wound at Schweich’s Clayton home along the 7100 block of Wydown Boulevard.  Clayton Police Chief Kevin Murphy says it appears to have been a suicide.

Schweich was rushed to Barnes Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead.

During a Thursday afternoon press conference, Murphy declined to say whether or not there was a suicide note.  Murphy did confirm that a family member was home with Schweich at the time of the incident.

There’s no evidence at this point of political threats being the motive for the suicide according to the investigation.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday morning.

Just last month, Schweich announced that he was seeking the Republican nomination for governor in 2016.
