A medical examiner says a former Escambia County, Florida commissioner who was looking at a possible prison term on corruption charges killed himself by drinking antifreeze.
Willie Junior's decomposed body was found a little over two months ago under a house in Pensacola. He had vanished the day before he was supposed to be sentenced on 11 criminal charges.
Some of those charges were linked to a bribery scandal involving the county's purchase of a former Pensacola soccer complex.
Junior was one of four Escambia commissioners who were suspended in the scandal, including former State Senator W.D. Childers, also from Pensacola.
