Before shooting himself, Spence Jackson, spokesman for the Missouri auditor, tried to make clear why he was ending his life.
Wrote Spence in a note: "I'm so sorry; I just can't take being unemployed again.”
The note was dated "3-27-15" at the top.
His words were made public Tuesday by Jefferson City police Capt. Doug Shoemaker, who disclosed the preliminary results of the probe into Jackson’s apparent suicide.
