CARTWRIGHT,OK---The search for a man accused of shooting and killing a woman last night at a Denison home is now over after he was found dead this afternoon.

The Bryan County sheriff says investigators found the body of Aaron Lynn Smith this afternoon less than 24 hours after the Denison shooting.

53 year old Aaron Smith's body was found in his truck on Lee Street and Main in Cartwright this afternoon after a nearby resident spotted the truck this morning and reported it as suspicious.

When authorities arrived on scene they discovered smith was dead.

Smith is suspected of shooting 47-year-old Yvonne Gauthier at her home in the 100 block of Cedar Drive just outside of Denison last night.

Bryan County Sheriff Ken Golden says OSBI and Texas Rangers are assisting his office in the investigation.

"You want to get things wrapped up as soon as possible, but you don't want to miss anything, so a good investigation is going to take some time, we've got some excellent people working out here working today, I believe this is going to be wrapped up real quick." said Sheriff Ken Golden.
