A report released by Daytona Beach police confirms that Michael Gossett, known in professional wrestling as Mike Graham, was found dead “lying face up” on a bed Thursday night in a North Halifax Drive home from an apparent self-inflicted “gunshot wound to the forehead.”

The 61-year-old was found dead by his wife, with police and paramedics responding to a 911 call at 8:47 p.m. for a report of a suicide. Graham’s wife told police that the former wrestler “had threatened to commit suicide frequently ever since (his) son committed suicide two years prior during Biketoberfest.”

According to the police report, a Freedom Arms .22 caliber revolver was found next to Graham’s body, and was “lying face up on the bed with a gunshot wound to the forehead.”

Police are conducting a homicide investigation, which is standard procedure on these cases, and a ruling of suicide is expected to be determined.

Graham’s father, Eddie Gossett, famously known as Eddie Graham, an influential Florida wrestling promoter, also committed suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot to the head on January 21, 1985.
