    Don't worry, it's not like his mom actually lets him hang dead bodies around her house.

    Re: Census worker hanged, "FED" written on his chest

    Just to point out, I'm not saying that this was done by disaffected conservatives. I'm just saying that it is one possibility. Does anyone deny that it is one possibility?

    And wow! My entire state seems to be on that drug map.

    Did this Alex Libman person piss you off or something?

    I still think you're grasping.

    Law enforcement in the area supports the drug angle or even suicide:

    State police had announced the cause of death was asphyxiation, then clarified Friday that was a preliminary determination pending a full medical examination of the body. Rudzinsky said investigators hadn't yet determined whether the death was a homicide, suicide or accidental.


    Although anti-government sentiment was one possibility, some in law enforcement also cited the prevalence of drug activity in the area — including meth labs and marijuana fields — although they had no reason to believe there was a link to Sparkman's death.

    "Now they're taking their meth lab operations into the rural, secluded areas," Clay County Sheriff Kevin Johnson said. "We've had complaints in the area, but not that particular location."

    On one day last week, law enforcement in the county rounded up 40 drug suspects, most of them traffickers, Johnson said.

    Dee Davis, president of the Center for Rural Strategies in nearby Whitesburg, said the federal government has done "precious little" in Clay County other than building a federal prison in Manchester in the 1990s. But he is not aware of any deep-seated hatred of the government.


    "Government is not seen as the enemy, except for people who might fear getting caught for what they're doing," he said.
    Just as I was grabbling the URL, the story refreshed, so these quotes didn;t appear in the new story. I had to grab it from another source.

    From your own article,

    "

    Re: Census worker hanged, "FED" written on his chest

    New details from witnesses who found the body:


    (snip ... )

    ''The only thing he had on was a pair of socks,'' Weaver said. ''And they had duct-taped his hands, his wrists. He had duct tape over his eyes, and they gagged him with a red rag or something.''

    ''And they even had duct tape around his neck. And they had like his identification tag on his neck. They had it duct-taped to the side of his neck, on the right side, almost on his right shoulder.''

    Two people briefed on the investigation said various details of Weaver's account matched the details of the crime scene, though both people said they were not informed who found the body. The two spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.

    Weaver said he couldn't tell if the tag was a Census Bureau ID because he didn't get close enough to read it. But both of the people briefed on the investigation confirmed Sparkman's Census ID was found taped to his head and shoulder area.

    Weaver said he could see something written on Sparkman's chest but he did not go close enough to read it.

    While authorities confirmed for the first time Thursday that asphyxiation was the cause of death, even the details behind that were murky. According to a Kentucky State Police statement, the body was hanging from a tree with a noose around the neck, yet it was in contact with the ground.

    Weaver, who works for a family topsoil business in Fairfield, said he was in town for a family reunion and was visiting family grave sites at the cemetery when he and family members including his wife and daughter came across the body.

    The scene left Weaver without a doubt how Sparkman died.

    ''He was murdered,'' he said. ''There's no doubt.''

    So the fact that he was a census worker definitely was part of it...
