A 23-year-old man runs away after confessing to the murders of his mother and friend on Facebook.
A man from Tennessee who posted a confession on Facebook on Sunday that describes how he fatally shot his mother and a friend, was found dead in Vossburg, Miss., According to the police.
Casey James Lawhorn, 22, was wanted for the deaths of his mother and a friend. Lawhorn's body was found about 100 yards from his abandoned vehicle at mile 118 of Interstate 59, Jasper County Sheriff Randy Johnson said in a statement Monday morning.
Lawhorn posted on Facebook Sunday afternoon describing how he fatally shot Vi Lawh orn and Avery Gaines in East Ridge, Tennessee, at around 5 a.m. Sunday. The publication has been removed since then.
"I've spent a lot of time thinking about the murder, wondering how it feels, but I hardly feel anything," he wrote in the deleted post.
In his Facebook post on Sunday, Lawhorn wrote: "Because many people are still trying to communicate with me on Facebook, I think I can say my article once here and finish it." Before I begin, I need to emphasize that I assume all the responsibility for my actions Nothing that someone has done or has not caused this, my decisions and my failures are mine Technical details: This morning, around 01:30, I shot and killed my mother (Vi Lawhorn ) and a friend of mine (Avery Gaines) with a .22 LR theft "
He continued to give graphic details about his two deaths, saying that he shot Gaines while he was sleeping on the ground. He said it looked like Gaines died instantly.
Then he went into his mother's room and tried to shoot him, he said, but his gun got stuck. She was intoxicated and did not seem to recognize what had happened, she said. He left the room to clear the traffic jam and then went back inside.
Vi Lawhorn was trying to comfort his dog Oscar, Casey Lawhorn wrote, and he shot her several times until she died.
Both victims were killed in the head.
Lawhorn is going to tell his Facebook friends to keep their "thoughts and prayers".
"Do not give me or my family your thoughts and prayers, nobody will do more harm for this than my brother (Chad Lawhorn). You will probably need a lot of help to overcome this, and if you think you are helping him Just talking to the sky, you're wrong, if you want to help him in this incredibly difficult moment, I'm putting it into practice, I really do something, do not just think about it, I'm more sorry than anyone, "Lawhorn wrote. "That said, I do not want or need anyone's forgiveness, what I did is unforgivable, and prayer is a waste of time, nothing happens after death, but if there's a hell, I'll be in the ice lake at the bottom. "
Identified a different position at the end of the publication.
"However, while I'm sitting here in Mississippi, writing this on the side of I-59 south after my car broke down." What I look forward to is nothing after death. I've spent a lot of time thinking about the murder, wondering what it feels like, "he said." But I barely feel anything. "
