It's too soon to say why Census worker Bill Sparkman died, but found hanging from a tree with the word "FED" scrawled on his chest, Sparkman's death is being investigated as a possible homicide. Sparkman's body was found on September 12, according to the Associated Press, in the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky -- on the very day that anti-government activists marched on Washington.
The Census Bureau, according to the AP's Devlin Barrett, appearing on last night's Rachel Maddow show, has asked its workers in the county where Barrett's body was found to suspend their door-to-door canvassing.
Here's the video of Barrett appearing on Maddow's show:
