Nixon: Schweich was brilliant, devoted, accomplished public servant

Gov. Jay Nixon today released the following statement upon the death of Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich. The Governor also has ordered flags at all Missouri state facilities to be immediately lowered to half-staff to honor his passing.

“I join all Missourians in mourning the passing of State Auditor Tom Schweich, a brilliant, devoted and accomplished public servant who dedicated his career to making Missouri and the world a better place,” Gov. Nixon said. “From his courageous work to combat the illegal drug trade abroad in Afghanistan to his tireless efforts to protect the interests of taxpayers here in Missouri, Tom Schweich’s exceptional intellect and unwavering dedication to public service left a legacy that will endure for many years to come. The First Lady and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Tom’s wife Kathy and two children, Emilie and Thomas, Jr.”

This is shocking news and I find it extremely suspicious. I think he was murdered. 5 days away from the audit presentation, and he commits suicide? I don't buy it. He had so much to live for. A family and successful career. There is something sinister going on here. He was only doing his job, but someone felt threatened. That is my hunch for what its worth. INVESTIGATE IT!
