LINCOLN COUNTY, NC ( — Retired racecar driver Richard “Dick” Trickle, 71, died Thursday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Lincoln County officials.

The shooting occurred at 12:02 p.m. at Forest Lawn Cemetery on Highway 150 East in Boger City.

The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call, apparently from Trickle, that “there would be a dead body and it would be his.” Communications Center workers tried to place a return call to the number but did not get an answer.
