Casey James Lawhorn's chilling Facebook confession after 'shooting dead mum and pal' – as cops launch manhunt

Man posts Facebook confession hours after mom friend are found dead

The Jasper County Sheriff's Department announced on Facebook on Monday that it discovered a body in the Vossburg, Mississippi, area that authorities believe is 23-year-old Casey James Lawhorn.

Smith admitted to police that she disciplined the boy, who she said was acting "sneaky" and started stuttering - something he did out of fear, according to KYW.

"Surely any normal person would wish death on themselves after doing what I did, seeing what I saw, and hearing what I heard", he reportedly wrote. "He told us that he had committed the crime and that he was going to a location north of our city to find a secluded spot to kill himself".

There was no information on the motive, Allen said.

East Ridge Assistant Police Chief Stan Allen told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that Lawhorn notified authorities about the bodies, then fled the state. His vehicle was found abandoned on the side of a highway in Jasper County on Sunday.

In the 1,000-word account posted to Facebook, Lawhorn describes using a "stolen.22 LR rifle caliber" to murder his mother, Vi Lawhorn, and a friend, Avery Gaines of Ringgold, Georgia.

Lawhorn allegedly confessed to shooting his friend once in the head as he slept. "Movies really don't do justice to how true terror sounds", Lawhorn continued. If you want to help him in this insanely hard time I'm putting him through, actually do something, don't just think about it.

He said the gun jammed again, he fixed it again, turned on the lights so he wouldn't miss and shot his mother to death.

"Since so many people keep trying to reach out to me on Facebook, I figure I can just say my piece once here and be done with it".

In his harrowing confession to his 226 online friends, Lawhorn said Avery was sleeping at his house while he went to collect his drunk mum up from Buds Sports Bar.

He said in the posts he shot at her twice more before it was over and then he took money and heroin from Gaines. "And prayer is a waste of time, nothing happens after death, but if there is a hell, I'm going to be in the lake of ice at the bottom".

Murder charges were recently filed against Lisa Smith, 19, and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Keiff King, after an autopsy on Smith's son, Tahjir, revealed that the child died from multiple blunt-force injuries, thermal injuries and shock.

In the apparent Facebook confession, Lawhorn said he was writing the post on the side of I-59 south in MS after his vehicle broke down.
