As we reported earlier, Gregory Graham, a third-generation car dealership owner in Ligonier, Pennsylvania tragically died of a heart attack last month while setting fire to the cars on his lot. His company, Graham Colonial Motors, was evidently burdened by more than a million dollars in liens, in addition to the daily woes of doing business in this business climate.

According to the Associated Press, Graham's partner in the business was his brother, Randolph, who took a job at another dealer not far away when the family business closed, but he disappeared not long after taking the position. Two days later, hunters reportedly found his body inside his car, in the woods. The coroner has not ruled out suicide, and is waiting for toxicology result before announcing the cause of death.

        You're kidding right? They're all Pontiacs. Three Grand Ams and one G6.

      "tragically died" ?? Is this sarcasm?

      the shxt's bad, but not THAT bad...

      And why is this personal family issue worth plastering all over webblogs?

      This is turning into sensational 'journalism'. There's no need to use these stories to underline the current state of affairs at dealership. We all know it's bad, so illustrating it this is way is not in the least bit relevant.

      Ok, the torching itself is newsworthy, but is this far off topic, when you're dragging in family. What's next, his dog died too?

      Hmmm, Western PA is now minus three grand ams and one g6 - methinks he did us a favor.

        This blog has turned into domestic hate zone.
