John Barnett was engaged in a lawsuit when police said he was found with a gunshot wound to the head. His attorneys want a full investigation.

A former Boeing employee known for raising concerns about the safety of its planes was found dead while working on providing a deposition as part of a lawsuit against the aviation giant, his attorneys said.

John Barnett, 62, was discovered with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head outside of a Holiday Inn in Charleston, South Carolina, on Saturday, the Charleston Police Department said in a statement that cited the local county coroner’s office, which separately confirmed his death to HuffPost.

His discovery in a vehicle, just before 10:20 a.m., followed a request for a welfare check at the hotel, police said.
