Apparently it was a suicide, according to the Observer-Tribune (see link). http://newjerseyhills.com/observer-tribune/news/body-found-in-harding-s-great-swamp/article_435fd25e-59cb-11e2-98fc-001a4bcf887a.html

Suicide is seems unlikely. The body had a bullet hole in the stomach. Given the remote location and Florida plates at the scene, I'd guess it was more like murder.

Chess, I agree. I believe a bullet to the stomach results in a long painful death.
