The death of a Victoria man found Tuesday has been ruled a suicide.
Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Robert Whitaker ruled Michael Marbach, 56, died of a self-inflicted gun shot to the head.
He used a 12-gauge shotgun, said Victoria County Sheriff's Office Capt. Herb Tucker.
Deputies went to Marbach's house to check on him after his employer said he had not shown up for work. Deputies found his body, Tucker said.
