ATHENS, Ga. — Police say they've found the passport of a University of Georgia professor suspected of killing his wife and two others outside a community theater.

Athens-Clarke County Police Capt. Clarence Holeman confirmed Monday that George Zinkhan's passport was found inside his wrecked Jeep in a ravine a few miles from his home Friday.

Zinkhan is accused of killing his wife, Marie Bruce, 63-year-old Ben Teague and 40-year-old Tom Tanner as they gathered for a picnic April 25. Two others were hit by bullet fragments.

Authorities say the marketing professor never showed up Saturday for a flight to Amsterdam that he booked before the shootings.

Holeman said officers have little information to help them in their search for Zinkhan.

My guess is that he is dead

My guess is that he is dead in the woods, probably within about half a mile of the Jeep.
