The elderly co-founder of a major fuel retailer in Greece facing bankruptcy apparently shot himself in the head on Sunday.

Police ruled out foul play in the death of Jet Oil board president Kyriakos Mamidakis, 84, whose body bore a single gunshot wound to the left temple. A handgun, legally possessed by the victim, was found next to the body.
