Evan ChandlerEvan Chandler -- the father of Jordan Chandler, who accused Michael Jackson of molesting him -- was found dead early this month of a gunshot wound to the head, the New York Post reports.

The 65-year-old former dentist was discovered in his Jersey City apartment with a .38-caliber revolver in his hand, officials say. The building's concierge found the body. No note has been found, but police officials believe it's an open-shut case.

"He [Chandler] was on his bed still holding the weapon with a single gunshot wound to the head," Jersey City police spokesman Stan Eason told reporters. "It's straightforward. Case closed. It's suicide."
