SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) - Police have released photos of the crate where they say a Missouri man held a woman captive before she escaped and was later shot to death.

James Barton Horn, of Sedalia, was accused of holding Sandra Sutton captive off-and-on for months before she escaped last month. Sutton and her 17-year-old son, Zachary Wade Sutton, were found shot to death last week at a relative’s home in Clinton, where Sutton had gone to live after escaping Horn.

Horn was being sought on kidnapping charges and later for the Suttons’ deaths. Police found and killed Horn Saturday in a rural area in western Missouri.

The photos released Thursday showing a crude wooden crate that contained a sleeping bag, water bottle and other items, including a bucket police said held urine and feces.
