A partner of Ashley Furniture has died from a self-inflicted gun-shot wound.
Tad Lanford owned part of the furniture stores here in Abilene and San Angelo.
Earlier this week Ashley's abruptly closed its doors.
And on Wednesday a tax warrant was severed.
The home store owes about $20,000 in back taxes.
The reason for the stores closings are still unknown.
Now we spoke with the Better Business Bureau about customer options for furniture they are waiting for their advice was to contact company headquarters.
