(APPLING, Ga.) — A man who was suspected of killing five people Friday was found dead in his northeastern Georgia home of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Andy Shedd said the body of Wayne Anthony Hawes was recovered by authorities after midnight Saturday. Police found Hawes after a pair of shootings left three women and two men dead in homes about half a mile from each other.
Investigators believe some of the victims were related to the suspect’s wife, Shedd said.
