A former Southwest Missouri city councilman has been found dead. Police said Joshua Morris was found in a park in Republic with a single gunshot wound. They are calling it a questionable death and Chief Mark Lowe said they are investigating all possibilities.
"At this point it’s a questionable death and until we’ve completed out investigation we won’t know any more about it whether it was accidental, homicide or self-inflicted," he said.
Morris’s ex-wife was on the scene and police are questioning her, Lowe said.
