Alabama triple murder suspect commits suicide in Florida

GARDENDALE, Ala. (AP) — A man wanted in the fatal shooting of his ex-wife and two other people near Birmingham, Alabama, has killed himself in the Florida Panhandle.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Deb Henley in Escambia County, Florida, says 52-year-old Kenneth Dion Lever killed himself Wednesday afternoon after deputies spotted him in a parking lot.

She says Lever got out of a car and took his own life, but it wasn’t immediately clear how.

Authorities had been searching for Lever since three people were shot to death Wednesday morning at a mobile home park in the Birmingham suburb of Gardendale.

The dead include ex-wife Dana Reeves Lever, who filed court papers accusing the man of stalking and harassing her.

The other victims are Dana Reeves Lever’s sister, 65-year-old Bonnie Reeves Foshee; and Reeves Foshee’s husband, 69-year-old Don Austin Foshee.
