The manhunt for two suspects in four slayings in Florida and Alabama ended Tuesday afternoon at a motel in West Point, Georgia.
Troup County, Georgia, Sheriff James Woodruff told reporters that officers from several agencies surrounded the motel when a tip came in Tuesday afternoon that the pair were in one of the rooms.
“The suspects were held up in the West Point Motel,” said Woodruff. “Mary Rice, she is in custody, and William Boyette we believe has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
The outcome of the siege, says Woodruff, was welcomed.
