Your ex-Hubby? How eloquently put.
The increase in suicide rates in this demographic is very concerning.

Tragic. RIP

agreed.
Disagree. For example, they do not know if he died of smoke inhalation or a drugs overdose. He is unidentified by law until you can 100% prove who he is. They probably know who owns the car and the relationship to the occupants of the house, or if no occupants, the house. To say that this incident is not being treated as suspicious means they probably, at this early stage, have a very good idea who is in the car and what went on here.
