SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Police records show a holster and unfired bullets belonging to a Glynn County commissioner were found in his car near a boat dock where the 52-year-old official was found dead.

The report released by Glynn County police also says two empty prescription bottles were found in Commissioner Tom Sublett's car. His body was found Dec. 11 on St. Simons Island.

Police Chief Matt Doering said Wednesday police are still investigating Sublett's death as a homicide, but says suicide has not been ruled out.

An autopsy determined Sublett was shot in the head, but died from drowning. His body was found floating beside a docked boat.

The police report also says police found five zip-tie straps at the scene. Doering declined to discuss their possible significance.
