Police prepare to offer more information on the death of Spence Jackson

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Police investigating the apparent suicide of the Missouri auditor’s spokesman say they will be discussing the contents of a note that he left behind.

Jefferson City police have scheduled a Tuesday afternoon press conference to talk about the note and release the preliminary findings of a medical examiner’s report.

Spence Jackson was found dead Sunday in his Jefferson City apartment of what police have described as an apparent self-inflicted gunshot. Jackson’s death came about a month after his boss, Auditor Tom Schweich, fatally shot himself.

Schweich’s suicide occurred just minutes after he told a reporter that he wanted to go public with allegations that the head of the Missouri Republican Party had made anti-Semitic remarks about him. The party chairman has denied doing so.
