State Police issued a statement today releasing the name of an Alabama murder suspect who they say killed himself yesterday on I-40 after fleeing and being chased by an Arkansas State Troopers. 

ASP identified the man as Lindsey Scott Carter, 44, of Paint Rock, Ala. Police in Alabama were seeking him for questioning in the murder of 34-year-old Amy Murphy, who was found shot to death in her home in Madison Co., Alabama early Sunday morning. 

According to Arkansas State Police, Carter was in a car with a female driver when a trooper initiated a traffic stop  on I-40 westbound near Ozark in Franklin County just before 1 p.m. yesterday. As the car pulled off the road, the female jumped from the car and fled into the woods. After the trooper began to chase her, Carter took the car and then sped away on I-40. 

Just after 1 p.m., troopers spotted the car on I-40 and a short chase ensued. After the car pulled over, troopers approached, only to find Carter dead at the wheel, the victim of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Troopers were able to arrest Carter's 36-year-old female companion. She has since been released, and will reportedly face no charges in connection with the incident.
