In a chilling 911 call that preceded his suicide, race-car driver Dick Trickle tells the operator "there's gonna be a dead body" and tells her exactly where to find it.

Soon after, emergency personnel discovered the body of the NASCAR legend at Forest Lawn Cemetery in North Carolina, killed by a gunshot to the head.

Trickle tells her it will be a suicide, and when she asks whether he is on the scene, he says "I'm the one."

As she offers to "get help to you," he hangs up.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Trickle had been suffering from chronic chest pain under his left breast and, according to brother Chuck, spiraled into depression amid his unbearable discomfort. Chuck says:

He was very down. He more or less said he didn’t know how much longer he could take the pain.
