Rest in Peace Matthew Vanderpool

A tragic day in the Bluegrass region, our former Democratic candidate who squared off against Stan Lee this last fall, rest in peace Matthew Vanderpool.

From the HL:

Former political candidate Matthew D. Vanderpool, 26, of Lexington, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head several hours after police were called to 812 Wheatcroft Court by a man reporting his son was suicidal and had a gun.

Miles White, chief deputy coroner, confirmed Wednesday that Vanderpool ran against State Rep. Stan Lee, R-Lexington, in 2010. He listed his occupation at the time as a college student.

When police arrived at the scene, near Russell Cave Road and Interstate 75/64, they heard a gunshot coming from inside the home, and a window broke in the garage, Lt. Rodney Sherrod said late Tuesday.
