John Barnett is presumed to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on March 9 before he was due for further questioning in court.

If police or a court with jurisdiction determine that foul play was involved in his death before the end of 2025, this question resolves YES. Otherwise it resolves NO.

The police investigation has concluded and says it was a suicide - this should resolve no @lumi

People on twitter seem to be reading a lot into the detail that his hand was holding the gun and his finger was on the trigger when they found his body. Twitter users seem to think this is extremely unlikely in suicides as the muscles relax and the hand drops the gun (and the trigger finger certainly doesn't stay in that position).

Are there any forensics people or hard-core true crime podcasters on here that care to comment?

I also have orders here:

bought Ṁ5 YES

@Joshua That one's got a 3 month limit. I don't care for that as I already have large size in this question.

@HarrisonNathan Fair enough! If you put up any limit orders here I might fill them.

opened a Ṁ100 YES at 10% order

@Joshua Added 100 mana at 10% but I really don't want to get bigger than that. There's a decent likelihood that he was murdered and the police won't conclude as much anyway.

opened a Ṁ1,300 NO at 10% order

@HarrisonNathan Reasonable, you can always buy more yes later. I've googled a bit more and I'm more confident so I'm taking your order at 10%.

Sounds like something a guy thinking about suicide would say!

@traders Fill my limit orders if you think otherwise.
