Posted: Updated:

OZARK (KATV) - A suspect wanted in connection with an Alabama homicide investigation died after a police pursuit that spanned over two Arkansas counties Sunday afternoon. 

According to an Arkansas State Police report, around 12:50 p.m., a trooper pulled over a vehicle that matched a description of one believed to be occupied by Alabama fugitive, 44-year-old Lindsey Scott Carter, on Interstate 40 near Ozark.

The report states that as the vehicle began to stop, a female driver, 36-year-old Misty Burgess, left the vehicle and ran from the trooper.  Carter, who police said was hiding in the car, took control of the it and continued to flee westbound on I-40. 

The report states troopers out of Fort Smith were able to pull over Carter after another pursuit, but found him dead when they approached the vehicle.

Preliminarily, state police believe Carter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

Burgess was arrested in Franklin County, but later released without charges. 

The Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division will conduct an internal investigation into the incident and turn it over to prosecuting attorneys.
