According to Dallas Police, Louis Rothermel III, 44, died yesterday after an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head at the Dallas Marriott. The death, which is still officially classified as “unexplained,” shortly follows the passing of Rothermel’s infant son, Harrison, on July 15.
The Dallas Morning News described the baby’s death as “suspicious” in a Page 2 brief in today’s Metro section. The write-up said Louis and his wife, Honea, were cooperating with the investigation. The couple’s older son is reportedly in foster care.
