BARTLETT, TN (WMC-TV) - Lisa Renee Davis was killed by a gunshot wound to the head, according to a preliminary report released by the Shelby County Medical Examiner.

In a press release issued by the Bartlett Police Department, officials said a .22 caliber weapon recovered from Austin Agee's vehicle was verified with autopsy evidence as the weapon used in Davis' death.

A sexual assault examination could not determine if Davis had been sexually assaulted, officials said.

Bartlett Police Department investigators determined from evidence in Davis' home and where Davis was found that Agee acted alone in committing the crime against her.

A note found at Austin Agee's residence led authorities to the body of Davis, 29, in a remote field hours after Agee shot himself last Tuesday.

At a news conference last week, Bartlett Police Department Lt. Jeff 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.

"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.

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 last week.

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.
