Dick Trickle, a former NASCAR driver, is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

It appears to be a chilling self-fulfilling prophecy. Someone called the Lincoln County Communications Center earlier Thursday, saying there would be a dead body at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Boger City. He said it would be the person on the phone. After calls to the number went unanswered, crews found Trickle’s body lying near his pickup truck.

And so it goes. No one knows what demons people are facing day-to-day.

Trickle, 71, was a beloved character on the NASCAR circuit.
