Google Billy Sol Estes.
It has been a long time, but I remember there was some Ag Dept guy that got onto his scam. Was investigating him on his own on the quiet Poor guy committed suicide. Shot himself something like 22 times.
Or maybe it was 12 imes with a .22. I forgot the details, but it was unreal.
Billy Sol Estes was in some manner connected to President Johnson...
IIRC, Billy Sol Estes funneled money to Johnson who in turn made sure regulators looked the other way on Estes’ deals.
When the deals imploded those who knew or were on track to connect Johnson mysteriously perished, most likely on orders from Johnson, not Estes.
It’s usually called you commit suicide or we will do it for you; but shooting yourself 22 times takes the cake. I remember Billy Sol.
