Authorities say a Forrest County man wanted for questioning in his wife's homicide has been found dead in Alabama.

The Hattiesburg American and WDAM-TV reported that the body of 31-year-old Rosmond Lay was discovered Tuesday night at a rest area in Greene County, Ala.

Authorities had been searching for Lay after the body of his wife, 27-year-old Andrea Lay, was discovered in the couple's home in Rawls Springs Monday. Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict said she had been shot.

Benedict said Rosmond Lay died of a single gunshot wound to the head. He was found sitting in his wife's missing Toyota Camry with the motor still running.

    Motor still running!!? You mean to tell me someone could have driven off with a dead man?? This doesnt make any sense to me at all. Why would he want to waste gas? Did they have any kids together?
