David Vowell Biography
The body of a 70-year-old suspect wanted in a double homicide was found in a lake in Tennessee on Saturday, authorities said.
David Vowell’s body was found around 3:00 p.m. In the waters of Reelfoot Lake in Obion County, about 50 miles north of Jackson, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation tweeted.
The discovery came after the office announced Friday that it was working with U.S. Marshals, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, and the Obion County Sheriff’s Office to search for Vowell in the lake and its surroundings.
His body was found “near the crash site,” the office said. Monday’s double homicide took place at the north end of Reelfoot Lake, authorities said.
Investigators did not reveal how victims Chance Black, 26, and Zachery Grooms, 25, both from Weakly County, were killed. But police described Vowell as armed and dangerous.
An arrest warrant for Vowell was approved Tuesday based on two counts of first-degree murder, the bureau said. Authorities said they had not seen a criminal arrest in Tennessee.
An autopsy was scheduled to determine Vowell’s cause of death, the office said.
