It will be a few more days before it is learned what exactly killed the University of Georgia professor accused of murdering three people. Hundreds of searchers spent two weeks looking for Georgia Zinkhan and Saturday, his body was found in the woods not far from the theatre where he opened fire.
Alpha Team Search and Rescue, a group of men and women with their K-9 crew searched a total of 10 hours and 10 minutes before finding Zinkhan buried in a shallow grave.
The two week international manhunt for the triple murder suspect ended in the woods of Clarke County.
Complete story and latest video.
RYS Note: While this story does not speculate on the circumstances surrounding the shallow grave, a posted online story from the Atlanta Journal Constitution includes this text: "The search ended Saturday morning in a rural part of western Clarke County, when cadaver dogs found Zinkhan in a shallow grave police believe he dug before firing a bullet into his head."
