A Franklin County man who was wounded Saturday in an apparent suicide attempt appears to be making a "dramatic" recovery, law enforcement officials said.
County deputies responded about noon Saturday to a house at 5047 Highway N in the Robertsville area after receiving a report that the homeowner, Randy O. Price, 39, had suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

Lt. Chuck Subke said he interviewed Price at the hospital Sunday and had reports that man had been up and walking around.

In an interview, the couple's 14-year-old daughter said Randy Price told her and her siblings that her mother would be gone for a few days. The girl said she sent text messages to her mother and received responses, but the mother would not answer her calls.
