Review of death requested after Mishawaka man’s alleged suicide


The family of a Mishawaka man is asking for a review of his death after they disagreed with a ruling of suicide in the matter.

The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit is looking into the death of William Wilson, 23, who was found dead at an apartment early Sunday morning, July 21, with a gunshot wound to the head, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Mishawaka Police and the St. Joseph County Coroner’s Office believed the death was a suicide, which meant Metro Homicide was not called in.

Wilson’s family says the man was never suicidal, and say the evidence doesn’t fit suicide, including the wound being on the right side of his head when he was left-handed.

The case is under review to see if there is any reason to suspect foul play.
