STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police say a man described as a person of interest in an investigation of the disappearance of a Bridgeport woman has killed himself.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1FxlA36 ) that Marcus Jackson was a supervisor of Bridgeport police dispatchers.

Police say he fatally shot himself hours after the dismembered remains of 57-year-old Minnie Lincoln were found in a marshy area in Stratford. She was last seen March 27 in Bridgeport with the 36-year-old Jackson. Police said she was with Jackson in his pickup.

After Lincoln’s family reported her missing, police issued a broadcast for Jackson. He was found in his truck in the parking lot of the Mohegan Sun Casino.

Police said they questioned him about Lincoln’s disappearance and released him, though they still considered him a person of interest in the investigation.
