Joshua Lee Fults, the alleged murderer, dies

Joshua Lee Fults, the alleged murderer of Amber Jackson and her 3-year-old son Ethan, has died, according to Fannin County Coroner Becky Callihan.

Fults, 35, of McCaysville, was pronounced dead at 6:44 a.m. on Tuesday, March 12, having succumbed to a week-old self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, said Callihan.

"Prayers are needed on both sides," said Callihan

Fults had been charged with Jackson's March 4 murder, and additional charges were expected prior to his death, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Jackson, 31, and her young son Ethan were discovered shot to death on the front steps of their Morganton home the evening of March 4, according to the GBI.

Fults, identified as Jackson's boyfriend by authorities, "was located on the porch of the residence suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound" that same evening, according to the GBI.
