The FBI is looking into the death of a U.S. Census worker found hanging outside a Kentucky cemetery. Police found the body of 51-year-old Bill Sparkman in a remote part of the Daniel Boone National Forest nearly two weeks ago.
Investigators say he had the word "Fed" written across his chest. Sparkman had been working part-time as a census worker and substitute teacher at the time of his death.
Gilbert Accairdo, who directs an after-school program at an elementary school where Sparkman was a frequent substitute teacher, says: "We have the same questions that everybody does, you know? What happened to Mr. Sparkman? Because we just know what the state police has told us."
Police have not called the case a homicide yet - they are still trying to determine if there was foul play.
