Police: Suspect in Indiana killing believed dead in Alabama

DAPHNE, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a man wanted in a killing in Indiana is believed dead following a suicide on the shoulder of interstate highway in Alabama.

Sheriff’s officials say a man shot himself to death near the southwest Alabama town of Daphne after being stopped by police on Interstate 10 on Wednesday.

Investigators are still working to confirm the dead man’s identity. But they believe he was 40-year-old Jeffrey Dyer of Odon, Indiana, based in part on the pickup truck he was driving.

Authorities in Daviess County, Indiana, say they were looking for Dyer following a slaying that happened late Tuesday. The victim is identified as Travis Woodruff.

The scene of the roadside shooting in Alabama is about 680 miles south of the scene of the slaying in Indiana.
