According to multiple sources, Motts death was the result of a suicide. Police were summoned to the family's home on Tuesday morning with a report of a possible self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Motts' dealership had just undergone expansion, with the opening of an Abeloff Nissan at a new sprawling, five-acre location on Route 611 in Bartonsville.
"Nissan wanted Randy to build a new dealership. Nissan insisted it," Abeloff said.
Motts spent about $3.5 million, and had to put up his home as collateral for the loan, according to Abeloff.
"That was the beginning of his worries. To get the mortgage, he had to put his house up. That's what worried him. That spread him a little thin," Abeloff said.
Oil prices and the economy affected the Buick/Pontiac/GMC dealership. "The gas, that changed the whole market," Abeloff said.
