D.A. says Paschal death likely suicide

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty District Attorney says he has new information that leads him to believe the mysterious death of a former prominent Albany pediatrician was suicide.  But he is still waiting on GBI crime lab test results for any official ruling.


Dr Tommy Paschal's body was discovered in his Third Avenue home February 18th. He died from a single gunshot wound to the mouth. Investigators questioned four people in his death, but they were never charged, and are being held on other charges.
District Attorney Greg Edwards said new information now leads him to believe Paschal committed suicide, and was not murdered.

Edwards said "It's some information I got from a reliable source that corroborates some things that we learned independently.  So I believe that this information is valid."

Edwards said there will be no official ruling on Dr. Paschal's death, until all the crime lab analysis is concluded by the GBI.  And he hopes that will be finished in the next month.
