ADGER, Ala. (AP) - A body has been discovered that authorities believe is that of a man wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of his wife and two children.
Multiple media outlets report that Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies responded Saturday to a wooded area near Adger to investigate a report of a suspicious vehicle.
Chief Deputy Randy Christian says deputies found a vehicle registered to Stephen Sean Hutcheson and inside the body of a man believed to be Hutcheson, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Christian says positive identification will be made by the coroner. Christian says it appeared the man had been dead several days.
Forty-seven year old Hutcheson faced capital murder charges after the bodies of his wife and two children were found June 28 at their McCalla home.
