The suspected killer of a man and a woman in New Milford, Conn., was found dead in his car of an apparent self-inflicted wound about 15 miles away in Dutchess County late Thursday morning.

The two were found dead in a truck with a smashed driver’s side window at approximately 8:40 a.m. at the intersection of routes 7 and 55 in New Milford.

New Milford Police Department then issued a notice to area agencies to be on the lookout for the suspect’s vehicle, described as a light blue mini-van with North Carolina registration.

The vehicle was initially observed by an officer from the Dutchess County Probation Department on Dog Tail Corners Road, east of Berkshire Road in the town of Dover.

Police from the Dutchess County Sherriff’s Office, New York State Police, New Milford Police Department and Connecticut State Police converged on the vehicle found parked with the engine running on the shoulder of the roadway next to the Ten Mile River.

Police emergency service units were called to the scene and subsequently found the male subject dead in the vehicle.

There does not appear to be any remaining threat to the community, police said.
