  •  This is an important point (4.00)
    The obit says this:
    Mr. Webb, 49, was found dead in his Carmichael home Friday morning of gunshot wounds to the head, the Sacramento County Coroner's Office said Saturday.

    How does one shot oneself in the head more than once?

    This seems odd.

    •  Maybe entry wound and exit wound. (none)

        But the wording still sounds suspicious.

        Sounds like "He got accidentally run over a truck, a coupla times"

      One hand forward with a flower, one hand behind with the dagger.

    •  Shotgun (4.00)
      Doing research for my own diary entry (before this one popped up on the recommended list), I found that he apparently killed himself with a shotgun. A shotgun very much *will* leave multiple wounds, since there are multiple balls even in a bunchshot shell.

      Meanwhile, it turns out that the AP trashing of Gary Web is a complete whitewash of their own role in his death. Not only do they lie about his Dark Alliance serial being "discredited" (it wasn't -- not a single fact in that series has ever been refuted), but they also lied about why he was fired from the California Assembly, claiming that he was fired because he "didn't show up for work". He was actually fired as part of a wholesale housecleaning by House Speaker Nunez, who wanted his own staffers who were loyal to himself.
