SUMENER CO., Tenn. (WTVF) — A Gallatin man on the TBI's Most Wanted list, accused of killing a woman and her 9-year-old son, was found dead Sunday morning.

The Sumner County Sheriff's Office put out warrants for Kevin Marc Moore, 31, over the weekend, for the death of Jessie Binkley, 31, and her son Ezekiel Iacob, 9.

Deputies found the two victims Friday in Bethpage, dead with gunshot wounds.

Officials said evidence from the scene indicated Moore, who used to work for the victims' family business, as the suspect. They served a warrant at his home and found more evidence, but not Moore.

He was added to the TBI's Most Wanted Listed, with two counts of first-degree murder, especially aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony.

On Sunday, the Sumner County Sheriff's Office received a tip around 11 a.m. of a possible sighting of Moore at his Gallatin home on Murray Street.

Sheriff's deputies and Gallatin Police surrounded the house and reported hearing a noise from inside.

The person inside refused to come out. When officers served the search warrant and entered, they found Moore dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Friends and family of Jessie and Ezekiel are grieving the loss of the mother and son.

Ezekial's school Jack Anderson Elementary released a statement Sunday night:

"It is with our deepest regret that we confirm the loss of Ezekiel Iacob, a fourth grader, at Jack Anderson Elementary School. Our entire school district grieves this tragic loss with the Jack Anderson community.

We understand the emotional impact this can have on our students and we will have counselors available at the school Monday to address any needs. Jack Anderson is an extremely close knit school community and we know that they will come together to support each other during this terrible tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Iacob family during this extremely difficult time."
