Wanted Fire Captain Found Dead

The manhunt for a West Feliciana fire captain is over after his body was found in Colorado.

Authorities say Rudolf Shoats was wanted for the death of his wife. Her body was discovered Sunday afternoon in a vehicle outside her home in Wilkinson County, Mississippi.

Police say she suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

The search for Captain Shoats came to an end when authorities in Colorado found his body with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. They say he was found in his truck, which had rolled off a cliff.
