Dick Trickle
sounded extremely calm for a man planning to kill himself when he called 911 yesterday and told the operator, "There's going to be dead body ... suicide."

TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by the NASCAR driver moments before he shot himself. In the call, Trickle gave the dispatcher very detailed instructions about where to find the body at Forest Lawn Cemetery in North Carolina.

When the dispatcher asked Trickle if he was calling about someone else, Trickle replied, "No, I'm the one."

The operator begged Trickle to wait for help ... but her pleas went unanswered.

When emergency personnel arrived at the scene, Trickle's body was discovered right where he said it would be.

Officials say Trickle died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Now that is how a dispatcher is supposed to act. Not like the heartless woman who took the call from the kidnapped woman.

Reporting the news is a privilege, this is not "reporting" This is someone exploiting the way things are to get ratings. Yeah, you can get the 911 recording but being able to get your hands on that kind of information wasn't meant for people spreading it around for entertainment. You guys disgust me, he has family which I'm sure held him dear to their hearts, as well as friends and fans. Pure filth you spread. He was hurting, he was depressed, at the end of his rope, and you jump on that like a fly on feces.
