Gubernatorial candidate Mike Meyers conducted a live demonstration of a shotgun suicide in Rapid City Wednesday, complete with a fake gun. Meyers did this to prove that former Director of Economic Development Richard Benda could not have committed suicide and to suggest that he was instead murdered. Victoria Wicks has this report.
