DAVIESS CO, IN (WTHI) - Authorities in Daviess County, Indiana are investigating a homicide.

Deputies say Travis Woodruff was found dead in a home on Edwards Lane in Odon on Tuesday.

We've learned the man police believe committed the murder killed himself on the side of a Mobile, Alabama interstate as authorities closed in.

Jeffrey Dyer was wanted in connection to the murder. Alabama authorities were told to be on the lookout for Dyer's truck.

By chance, they spotted it and called in extra units.

Deputies say when the suspect saw the units in front and behind him, he made a quick turn to the shoulder of the interstate and deputies heard a shot.

The identity of the suspect is pending an autopsy.
