St. Marys police tell the Bradford Era ( http://bit.ly/S2ngFN) that Harold "Rudy" Simbeck, was found dead of apparent gunshot wounds Sunday, about 6:45 p.m. But police are refusing to release more details, and referred The Associated Press to Elk County Coroner Michelle Muccio for additional comment.
The coroner was out of town Tuesday and didn't immediately return a message from the AP, but has told the newspaper that final autopsy results will take about six to eight weeks.
Authorities are not saying whether they believe Simbeck was shot purposely, accidentally or whether he may have shot himself.
