Bleecker man's death ruled a suicide

BLEECKER – The death of a town man who was found inside his home Wednesday has been ruled a suicide.

Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey said today county Coroner Margaret Luck ruled the death of Anthony Blowers, 25, of 649 Barlow Road, a suicide after his autopsy Thursday afternoon.

Lorey said Blowers used a rifle.

“It was a gunshot wound to the chest,” Lorey said.

Lorey said his department, which investigated the death, needed autopsy information and forensic evidence before making a final determination on the death.

Lorey originally labeled the death “suspicious,” with Blowers’ body found inside his home.
