Police wrap up double murder investigation

Memphis police have abruptly closed the books on a double murder that baffled many in the Mid-South.

Last Friday, officers found the bodies of James and Stephanie Smith wrapped in plastic and hidden in an attic on East Parkway.

Tuesday, detectives said that Larry Mosley, a relative and neighbor of the couple, was their number one suspect.

The Smith's bodies were found in Mosley's attic, but before police could question Mosley, he was killed in a shoot out in Tunica. 

According to reports Mosley's father shot him and then turned the gun on himself.

Police say with their number one suspect dead, the investigation had no where else to go.
