A Rossville man whose body was discovered Friday apparently shot and killed himself about two weeks ago, Walker County coroner Dewayne Wilson said.

The body of Oren Clem, 59, of Baker Street was found early Friday morning by his estranged wife, the coroner said. A suicide note was discovered.

“Evidentially he and his wife split up two weeks ago and he was last seen two weeks ago,” Wilson said Friday. “…. His (estranged wife) came home today to get some clothes and found him dead in the bedroom.

“The condition we found him in, he has probably been dead almost (two weeks),” Wilson said.
