Cops investigating the possible murder-suicide of NASCAR superstar Robby Gordon‘s father say they’ve recovered a butcher knife near the body of Sharon Gordon … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement tells us … the knife was collected as evidence from the scene. Cops say the significance of its discovery is unclear at this moment.
The Gordon family’s attorney, Steve Nichols, tells TMZ … the family believes the knife played an important part in what led to Bob taking his own life.
Sources tell us the knife is a strong sign there may have been mutual combat between Robert “Baja Rob” and Sharon before their deaths.
Police have said Gordon strangled Sharon and then killed himself with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Nichols tells us there’s never been a history of violence in the Gordons’ long marriage.
