Denny Hecker's ex father-in-law, Bill Prohofsky, 71, shot himself in the head Thursday. Prohofsky was the stepfather of Hecker's ex-wife Tamitha.
The death comes a week after Prohofsky had been accused of aiding Hecker in hiding money from creditors.
A lawsuit against Prohofsky alleges Hecker paid Prohofsky $15,000 for holding money from bankruptcy court.
Police were called to a parking lot around 6:30 p.m. Thursday evening to find Prohofsky in his car with a gunshot wound in his head.
Prohofsky's family released a statement saying Bill is "a beloved father, grandfather, brother and uncle. He is near and dear to our hearts and the family is mourning and in shock."
No information as to whether Prohofsky left a note or not was released.
