MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) — A 90-year-old woman was among the victims of a quadruple slaying in Mississippi.
WTOK-TV reports that the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department identified Virginia Jay at a news conference Wednesday.
The other victims were identified as 64-year-old Beverly Kaiser Fulton; 39-year-old April Fulton Tucker and 14-year-old Bryce Fisher Tucker.
The suspect was identified as 40-year-old Matthew Jay Tucker.
Authorities said sometime between 9:30 p.m. Monday and noon Tuesday, Tucker killed Jay, who was his grandmother; along with his mother, wife, son and mother-in-law.
He later died of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound after leading police on a chase.
It was unclear how the victims were killed.
