A maintenance worker discovered the body of Steven L. Good, 52, of Highland Park, Monday morning behind the wheel of his Jaguar parked in a lot at the Max McGraw Wildlife Preserve in East Dundee, said Kane County Sheriff's Department spokesman Lt. Pat Gengler.
Good had suffered a single gunshot wound to the head. Gengler said police recovered a weapon inside the car but he would not identify it. There was no note, Gengler said.
Investigators are not sure how long Good's body had been at the preserve or why he was in Kane County, Gengler said.
Last month during an industry forecast, Good said conditions in the commercial real estate market were very challenging. Investment activity in commercial space has slowed to a crawl because of tight commercial lending policies and the job market's contraction, he said.
Police are investigating what led to the suicide.
Good was chairman and CEO of Sheldon Good & Co., founded by his father, Sheldon Good, in 1965. Steven Good was largely responsible for the company's expansion as it became the largest real estate auction company in the nation.
