A well-known local political blogger was found dead early Sunday morning in an apparent suicide.

Gary Welsh, the man behind the conservative blog "Advance Indiana," was found in the 400 block of Park Avenue with a gunshot wound. IMPD confirmed they are investigating the case as "a tragic suicide."

Welsh's final blog post was on Friday about a new poll on the GOP candidates in Indiana's presidential primary. That post included a troubling line that said, "If I'm not around to see the vote results, my prediction is that Trump wins Indiana with just shy of 50% of the vote, but he will carry every single congressional district and sweep the delegate race..."

He was also a practicing attorney.

The coroner is expected to officially rule on cause of death Monday.
