    I have only read accounts of a tag being tapped to his neck, I have seen nothing about his badge.

    But I think that every day that goes by without the police calling this a homicide make it much more likely that it was an accident.

    from the AP

    "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."

    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.

    Authorities have said a preliminary cause of death was asphyxiation, pending a full medical examination. According to a Kentucky State Police statement, the body was hanging from a tree with a rope around the neck, yet it was in contact with the ground.

    "And they even had duct tape around his neck," Weaver said. "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."

    Both of the people briefed on the investigation confirmed that Sparkman's Census Bureau ID was found taped to his head and shoulder area. Weaver said he couldn't tell if the tag was a Census ID because he didn't get close enough to read it. He could see writing on Sparkman's chest, but could not read that it said "fed."

    Authorities have said the word was scrawled with a felt-tip pen.
    He duct tape on his eyes and his neck, and his Census ID was taped on him. Can you give me any self-suffocation case even similar?

    Irrelevant at this time...

    "But the investigation has yet to determine whether the death of the 51-year-old part-time schoolteacher represents real anti-government sentiment. At this point, police cannot say whether Bill Sparkman's death was a homicide, an accident or even a suicide. - Area where census worker died has troubled history - Yahoo! News

    They have not ruled out anything at this point.

    "Davis acknowledged Clay's "pretty wild history of a black market economy, a drug economy." He noted that Sparkman's death occurred at a time when marijuana producers are typically harvesting their crop. - Area where census worker died has troubled history - Yahoo! News

    It does appear to have little or nothing to do with being politically motivated even according to the story.

    The political hackery of some posters in this thread is really over the top.

    Please stop making everything partisan. It is getting old.

    The article never said it appears to have little or nothing to do with political motivations. The writer decided to focus on the drug angle, but that isn't the same thing at all. The article did say anti-government sentiment was a possibility.

    The only political hackery that exists in this thead is the obvious chawing at the bit by many on this thread to blame this mans tragic death on druggie liberals...It is clear as a bell. All indications point otherwise but nope we have to ignore all of the evidence that this was a political murder.

    The "tag" that was taped to his neck was his plastic ID badge. It's referred to as ID tag and ID badge in different stories.

    You republicans are just determined to sweep all the wrongdoing by conservatives under the rug, aren't you? And we know that we should all be living in TERROR OF OUR VERY LIVES because of the conservative menace.

    Stop living in denial, you Beck stoolie.

    And the political hackery continues from the left and right.

    Thank you for a perfect example of what I was talking about.

    None of the several articles said it did and said it is most likely other things, every article.

    Do you have evidence showing otherwise?

    He went with the most likely cause, not the least likely, Occam's razor.

    You are trying to paint this as some kind of right or left issue and anti government sentiment comes from both sides. It is your silly partisan politics forcing you to take an extreme view of everything around you. It is sad really.

    As for the incident itself, Occam's razor seems to be in effect in the articles. You should follow suit and stop trying to blame everything on some kind of evil violent right wing crap.
