HARTFORD, Conn. – The death of a Connecticut attorney found shot in the head in a wrecked car in 2014 was not a homicide as his family believes, a state prosecutor said Tuesday in announcing the conclusion of a criminal investigation.
Gugsa Abraham “Abe” Dabela, 35, crashed his Mercedes SUV near his home in Redding shortly after 1:30 a.m. on April 5, 2014, and died of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head, Redding police said. Dabela’s blood-alcohol level was nearly 2.5 times the legal limit, police said. The medical examiner’s office ruled his death a suicide.
