ATHENS — A man who apparently killed himself after police chased him from Florence to Muscle Shoals had disappeared from Limestone County about a month ago, authorities said Monday.

Limestone County Sheriff's Department Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt said Cory
Carwile's family reported him missing Jan. 30, the day he was supposed to appear in court in Cullman to face criminal charges.

Limestone authorities never located him.

McNatt said Carwile lived at Bay Hill Village on the Tennessee River, but also
stayed with a girlfriend in Florence.

Police pursued the 33-year-old after he allegedly ran a stop sign in Florence at about 7 a.m. Saturday, according to news reports.

Carwile stopped his vehicle in Muscle Shoals about 30 minutes later.

As a police officer approached the vehicle, Carwile raised a weapon and shot himself, Muscle Shoals Police Chief Robert Evans told the Florence Times Daily.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident.

McNatt said an ABI agent called Limestone authorities Saturday about the death and to get family contact information.
