MOOREFIELD, W.Va. (AP) - Moorefield police are continuing to investigate the slaying of a teacher following the death of the suspect.

Police Chief Steven Reckart tells multiple media outlets that 47-year-old Jared D. Connors died on Sept. 18 at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Reckart says the investigation of 45-year-old Joy Coby’s death is continuing. Connors was the Moorefield Middle School teacher’s boyfriend and lived with her.

Police have said Connors shot himself inside Coby’s car in the parking lot of a Walmart in Staunton, Virginia, on Sept. 16 as a Virginia State Police trooper approached him. Police began searching for Connors after Coby’s body was found that day in woods near her home. He was tracked by his cell phone to Virginia.
