Morgantown - A West Virginia man suspected in four killings in separate shootings has been found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after an hours-long manhunt, police said on Monday.
Jody Lee Hunt, 39, was found in the woods in Monongalia County, state police spokesperson Lieutenant Dennis Johnson said.
Hunt's body was found in "a power line right of way" around 19:00, Johnson said.
Earlier, state police spokesperson Lieutenant Michael Baylous said Hunt was wanted in two shootings in the Westover area and the other the same day in the Cheat Lake area in Monongalia County.

He identified the two victims from the Cheat Lake shooting as Sharon Kay Berkshire, 39, and Michael David Frum, 28. Baylous had no details on the Westover shootings, saying other law enforcement agencies were handling them. The Monongalia County sheriff's office released no information by Monday evening.
According to public records, Berkshire filed a domestic violence case against Hunt last month. Court records also indicated there were no protective orders currently in place for Berkshire.
Frum's aunt, Ellen Shafer, said she knew few details about her nephew's death. She said Frum worked on detailing cars and did some construction work and other odd jobs.
State documents indicate Hunt owned J&J Towing and Repair LLC.
