(Newser) – A Chicago-area real estate mogul has been found dead after shooting himself in a wildlife preserve, CNN reports. Police say they don't know why 52-year-old Steven L. Good took his life; a rep said the local sheriff's department had no "concrete evidence if this had anything to do with his finances." The savvy CEO expanded Sheldon Good & Co—a major auction company his father started—to include clients like Donald Trump.

"If you lined up 1,000 people and said pick the one that might do this to themselves, he would be the last person I would choose," said a co-worker. "He had a zest for life. He has a wife and kids and he had so much in his life."
