EAST RIDGE, Tenn. (WDEF) - East Ridge Police continue to provide updates on the search for the suspect, Casey Lawhorn, in Sunday morning's double homicide. The body that was discovered was not too far away from that spot, WLOX reported. A statement from the Jasper County Sheriff's Department stated the auto was found empty along Interstate 59 in the area.

Lawhorn, a former MTSU student, was wanted in connection with a double homicide in East Ridge, Tenn., which he reportedly confessed to in a Facebook post. "Nothing anyone has or hasn't done to me caused this, my decisions and my failures are my own".

East Ridge Police say they are aware of a post made to the suspect's personal Facebook page in which he gives an account of this morning's events and claims to be broken down somewhere on I-59 in Mississippi. I've spent a lot of time thinking about murder, wondering what it feels like. In the post, he described the gun jamming a couple of times and shooting his mother as she lay in bed. "I walked up to Avery as he slept and shot him in the head once, he seemed to die instantly".

"Before I start, I need to emphasize that I take full responsibility for my actions". When he allegedly fired the last fatal shots, the post says he went into the living room and "felt nothing" as he took drugs and cash from his friend's dead body. Has been for more than 12 hours now, not to mention I've been suicidal since late high school. "I didn't want me mom to suffer, to die in horror, to die with the knowledge that her son did it", the post reads.

"We were already trying to locate him and we believed that he had left the area", Allen said. But the local sheriff's office said there was no evidence the suspect remained in the county or was hiding out in Cloudland Canyon, an isolated state park filled with deep, twisting canyons.

Warren Strain, the spokesperson for the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations, said the body, not yet officially identified as Lawhorn, was found approximately 100 yards from the abandoned Ford Taurus, near mile marker 118 off of Interstate 59.
