The death of Springfield, Illinois, Mayor Timothy Davlin has been ruled a suicide
An autopsy this morning by the Sangamon County Coroner revealed that Davlin died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
Police were called to the 53-year-old democrat's home yesterday after the mayor missed a court-ordered appearance in an estate matter.
Davlin was the mayor of Springfield since 2003 and was not seeking a third term next year.
Illinois State Police are still investigating his death.
