Sheriff James V. DiPaola Found Dead

Middlesex County Sheriff James V. DiPaola was found dead in a resort room of an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound to the head the Herald is reporting. He used the pillow to muffle the shot, was dressed in a white undershirt and left a stack of neatly places notes on the dresser near him. Since winning a landslide reelection earlier this month Sheriff DiPaola has come under fire for first attempting to collect his full pension and Sheriffs salary at the same time, and then amid allegations that he pocketed campaign contributions. The Attorney Generals Office announced recently that it is investigating the allegations.

After checking into the resort on Friday evening he was found yesterday by a employee after forcing the door open. His state vehicle and service weapon were apparently used in the suicide.
