Police: Man partied with model later found dead

Police: Man partied with model later found dead

A man who killed himself as investigators sought to question him about a missing Tennessee woman had partied with the part-time model in Memphis shortly before she disappeared, police said Wednesday.
A note found at Austin Agee's residence led authorities to the body of 29-year-old Lisa Renee Davis in a remote field hours after Agee shot himself Tuesday, said police Inspector Jeff Cox of Bartlett, a Memphis suburb.
At a news conference, Cox quoted the note as saying Agee was "sorry" for what he had done and indicated the body could be found in a field where the 21-year-old man used to ride four-wheelers.
The note, Cox said, did not indicate how Davis died and police were awaiting a coroner's report.
"He said that it just got out of hand. That's all he said," Cox said.
Agee shot himself shortly after detectives arrived at the residence he shared with his parents to question him as a "person of interest" in Davis' disappearance, authorities said.
Agee had been vague and nervous during an earlier interview, Cox said.
Police said the investigation was continuing as they try to determine if Agee was the only person suspected of involvement in Davis' death.
Davis, Agee and three other acquaintances partied together in the Beale Street entertainment district of Memphis on Saturday night, Cox said. The group dropped Davis off at her Bartlett residence about 2 a.m. Sunday but Cox said Agee is believed to have returned to the house.
Friends reported Davis missing when she failed to arrive for work Sunday in the finance office of a motorcycle dealership. Police following up on that report found blood and signs of a struggle at residence but no indications of forced entry.
Police believe Agee and Davis had known each other for only a short time.
"He had been hanging around with the group for about two or three weeks," Cox said.
An Internet Web site called Model Mayhem lists a posting under the name of a Lisa Davis who is described as an experienced bikini model and occasional movie extra. It listed appearances as extras in several movies and music videos among her credits.
