Josh Sparkman told The Associated Press in a phone interview that he is frustrated investigators still have not ruled out suicide or accidental death.
“I look at it as disrespectful to be still throwing suicide and accident around,” he said. “He didn’t do this to himself. That’s dishonorable. My dad was a good man. No person on this planet is going to fight cancer like he did, then turn around and kill himself a year or so later.”
… Josh Sparkman, 19, said he learned of his father’s death Sept. 13, a day after his body was found. Bill Sparkman adopted him when he was a baby.
“I completely broke down,” Josh Sparkman said. “It’s always just been me and my dad. It’s all I have, and I don’t have him anymore. I’m just kind of by myself.”
The younger Mr. Sparkman says he doesn’t have the money to bury his father, and that even if he did, the FBI has not released the body (they also searched his father’s home but haven’t told him anything.) He plans to move back to London, KY to try and find a job, and pay the $600 mortgage on his father’s home.
