TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) – A man wanted for killing his wife and four other people in Georgia was captured Monday in Tupelo.

Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson says Thomas Jesse Lee, 26, is being held in the Lee County Detention Center.

Tupelo Police Chief Bart Aguirre says someone gave Lee a ride to the Greyhound bus stop at a convenience store on North Veterans Boulevard. Then a caller tipped officers off to Lee’s whereabouts.

Lee was arrested in the store parking lot about 4:30 P.M.

Late Saturday night Troup County, Georgia deputies went to a home to check on its owner and that’s when the bodies of the victims were found.

Investigators say all of the victims, that ranged in age from 68 to 16, were shot.

Johnson says Lee County investigators are waiting on Georgia deputies to let them know what steps to take next.
