My question involves court procedures for the state of: Alabama Conecuh County
A relative (apparently) committed suicide while working at the Court House. He was the Records Manager. It is confirmed the relative committed suicide, but I cannot find one item of documentation regarding his death. The conflict is that he apparently shot himself twice with a shot gun. I've not been able to even find an obituary.
In addition, the same relative had a dad, living in the same city, also committed suicide by shooting himself with a shotgun. In fact, there have been other questionable deaths in this area over the years, mostly by people arguing over land ownership. Of course, there's more to the story, but for now, I would just like to find documents of authority (or even a sticky note!) to understand what really happened. One death was in 1970 and the other was 1987.
My question is: where would I find the court documentation (or any documentation) describing the deaths of these people? Can other family members keep this information from being accessed?
