Report: Census Worker In Kentucky Had Been Warned To Be Careful

As Frank said yesterday, much still isn't known about the death of Census field worker Bill Sparkman in Clay County, Ky. His body was discovered Sept. 12. Yesterday, it was reported that he was found hanged and that the word "fed" had been written on his chest.

Today on Federal News Radio, news director Ted Werbin of WHAS-radio in Louisville reported that Sparkman had told others he had been warned by a retired state trooper to be careful in rural Clay County because some people there aren't fond of anyone from the federal government.

Still, it's important to note that authorities do not yet know what happened to Sparkman.
