Tom Schweich Spokesman Spence Jackson Found Dead of Apparent Suicide
Spence Jackson, the chief spokesman for the late Missouri auditor Tom Schweich, died over the weekend from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Jefferson City police said Monday they responded to a call Sunday evening at Jackson’s apartment. They found the Republican dead in his bedroom.
The police said Jackson was 45, but other sources list his age as 44.
Jackson’s death shocked Missouri Republicans, who said it’s likely to re-open wounds that were only now starting to heal.
