Bill Coleman - June 28, 2019 9:01 am

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Investigators say a former Oklahoma state senator who was found dead inside his home apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot.
The Norman Police Department said Thursday it has concluded its investigation into the death of 53-year-old Jonathan Nichols. Investigators say foul play wasn’t involved.
Officers discovered Nichols’ body on June 5 inside his west Norman home after receiving a call about an individual with a gunshot wound. Police say their final report will be forwarded to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Nichols was a former Republican state senator from Norman who served from 2000 to 2012. Afterward he took staff positions with the state House, Senate and the University of Oklahoma.
