SUSPECT IN DOUBLE SLAYING KILLS HIMSELF IN POLICE STATION

A man suspected of killing two hunters in the woods in 1993 shot himself to death in a police station bathroom Wednesday after a nine-hour standoff during which he slid his confession under the door.

Jimmie Ray Beagle, 40, barricaded himself in the bathroom Tuesday during a break in questioning about the slayings.

Deputies never checked him for weapons when he went to the police station Tuesday because he was talking to investigators voluntarily, Sgt. Wes Gronikowski said.
