His death is being investigated as an apparent suicide,” the Metropolitan Nashville Police said in a statement to Variety.

The statement continued, “Mr. Jacobs’ wife, Kellie Pickler, reported that she awoke a short time earlier, did not see her husband, and began looking for him. After she and her personal assistant were unable to open the door to the upstairs bedroom/office, the assistant telephoned 911.”
