Bartlett detectives went to the Agee home around 2:00 p.m. Monday after receiving a tip that he knew something about the Davis case. Moments after they knocked on the door and told Agee's mother, Connie, that they needed to speak with him, a series of tragic events unfolded quickly.
"There was some sort of commotion that went on," says Steve Shular with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. "When the detectives got upstairs, there was a gunshot.
They went into the bedroom and found Agree dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound."
Investigators say Agee left a suicide note behind telling them where to find Lisa Davis' body
. Forensic experts located her in a wooded area not far from a church and just minutes from Agee's house.
When asked if the Bartlett Police Department was looking for anyone else connected to the case, Lt. Rory Mack replied: "Not at this time, not until we examine the body and the investigators fill out their information."
Neighbors say Austin Agee and Lisa Davis had known each other for years
and met through a mutual friend at Bumpus Harley-Davidson, where Lisa worked.
Friends also tell myEyewitnessNews.com that Austin had lifelong health problems and was waiting for a kidney transplant.
He and Davis had been in a group of people partying on Beale Street in the hours before her disappearance.
Investigators would not confirm if Agee was one of the friends who dropped Davis at her home early Sunday morning.
Lisa Davis' body was taken to the Shelby County Medical Examiner's Office for autopsy. A positive identification and cause of death are pending.
