Son of census worker doesn't think his father killed himself

The son of a census worker found dead in Clay County says he does not believe his father killed himself.

State police said last week that evidence and witness testimony led them to believe that Bill Sparkman committed suicide and staged his death to look like a murder.

Sparkman was found hanging to a tree with the word "fed" written on his chest.

Police say he recently took out two life insurance policies totaling $600,000.

Josh Sparkman told the Courier Journal that nobody who knew his father believes he killed himself.

He's asked an attorney if he can protest the findings.
