    Daniel Gillespie, Jr died two days after his 71st birthday.
    He was found dead within one day of a court WRIT OF POSSESSION which commanded the Sheriff to remove all persons from his property and put him in possession of his property.
    I think solving his '
    death from unnatural causes' will require a snitch reward.

    “I was very concerned that something was going to happen to him,” said Moss, who represented Gillespie in one of the court cases.
