Steven Meyer, the Republican Committeman for Oak Park, died apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Wednesday. Meyer, 50, was discovered by his wife shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday evening in the basement of their South Euclid Avenue home. The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed Thursday that cause of death was “multiple gunshot wounds to the head,” and characterized the death as a suicide.
