According to Al.com: A missing Selman mother of three was found shot to death Tuesday in the trunk of her vehicle, and her ex-husband was found dead in Birmingham from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier identified the murder victim as Mary Elizabeth Timmons Scott, a 35-year-old beloved hairstylist who was reported missing Monday. Her ex-husband has been identified as Greg Scott, a 63-year-old Selma psychologist.
Family reported Mary Scott and her two young daughters missing on Monday to the Dallas County Sheriff's Office, who brought Selma police into the investigation. Relatives posted on Facebook that the girls had spent the weekend with their father, and felt he may have tried to lure Mary Scott back to the home by telling her that one of the children was sick. "She had been in regular contact with her family and friends and made them aware that she was going to check on her children,'' according to one relative's post.
