East Texas girl, 14, killed by man later found dead

- An East Texas sheriff says a 14-year-old girl was shot and killed in her home and the suspected gunman was later found dead along a rural road.

Jasper County Sheriff Mitch Newman told the Beaumont Enterprise that Tristan Dilley was killed Sunday at the home in Buna, northeast of Beaumont.

Newman says the girl was found in a second-floor room with a gunshot wound to the head.

Evidence found at the home led authorities to search for a 19-year-old man who Newman says had a relationship with Dilley.

The man's body was found Monday near his vehicle on the rural road not far from Vidor. The man, who authorities have not identified, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Authorities have not provided a motive for the shooting.
