Pauls Valley, OK – Okla ME rules death of interim police a suicide

PAULS VALLEY, Okla. (AP) The state Medical Examiner's office has ruled that the death of the interim police chief of Pauls Valley was a suicide.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday an autopsy found that 42-year-old Scott Robbins died of a penetrating gunshot wound to the head.

OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said on Tuesday that a family member found Robbins' body at his home and called 911 about 2:40 p.m. Tuesday.

The agency says it will continue collecting information on the case and eventually will give the Garvin County Sheriff's Office a report on its investigation.
