New details on the murder of census worker Sparkman

These details were provided by an individual that found the body. From a local tv channel:

A coroner says the word “Fed” appeared to be written with a felt-tip pen on a U.S. census worker found dead in eastern Kentucky.

Clay County Coroner Jim Trosper confirmed the detail Friday, but would not elaborate.

The body of Bill Sparkman was found hanging from a tree September 12, in Daniel Boone National Forest.

Jerry Weaver of Fairfield, Ohio, one of the witnesses who found the part-time census worker’s body hanging in a Kentucky cemetery, says the man was naked, and his hands and feet were bound with duct tape.

Thursday night Kentucky State Police said the preliminary cause of death was asphyxiation.

“Detectives are still conducting the investigation,” said KSP Trooper Don Trosper. “They are working on it daily to try to ascertain what exactly occurred.”

And they still refuse to call it murder.
