Peter Goelden, 48, who ran for governor of Louisiana in 1987 as an independent, apparently hanged himself Tuesday at a Shreveport carpet store, where he was a salesman, police said. No suicide note was found at the store, police said. Mr. Goelden was among seven people who ran against Democrat Edwin Edwards in the 1987 election won by Democrat Gov. Charles E. "Buddy" Roemer III.
