Henry Hamilton, 64, of Key West, was found dead Thursday next to empty prescription bottles and his will, police said.

The owner of Tropical Tan had apparently told his partner Michael Cossey before the election that "if Barack gets re-elected, I'm not going to be around," reports. The last time they spoke was the night of the election.

Two days later, a police officer conducting a welfare check found Hamilton dead in his bedroom next to two empty bottles — one Xanax and one Seroquel, which is used to treat bipolar disorder. The words "Fuck Obama!" were reportedly written on his will.

Hamilton's death has not been officially ruled a suicide yet, as police are awaiting autopsy results.
