Exclusive: Estate sale at site of murder-suicide reveals trove of tactical supplies
Four months following a shocking murder-suicide near a prestigious Springfield country club, KY3 News is learning more about the man who pulled the trigger.
An estate company has now been tasked with selling off the valuable collectibles as well as the tactical supplies inside the late Robert O'Block's home.
"Cases for guns, some of the big over-the-shoulder holsters, nice big tote that's brand new," Sara Fear of Circle of Life Estate Sales said.
Entire walk-in closets are filled with flashlights, handcuffs, knives, hundreds of holsters, and other items.
Investigators said O'Block shared the home with longtime girlfriend Tiffany Fleming. Deputies believe O'block shot and killed Fleming before taking his own life four months ago.
"You learn a lot about an individual going through their house. You just do," Fear said.
In this case, Fear and her staff uncovered the largest stash of tactical supplies they had ever seen, well as many other items from O'Blocks line of work in forensics and security.
There were personal items, as well, including book signed by the late Hugh Hefner.
"This one (estate sale) was researching on some of the furniture, much higher-end than I've seen in a long time, just the tactical was all new to me. I had to bring people in," Fear said.
The estate sale is open by appointment only next Tuesday, November 28, and then will be open to the public on Thursday, November 30.
