NASHVILLE — A central Tennessee man wanted for questioning about the shooting death of his mother has been found dead inside a motel room.

Nashville police say motel staff found 48-year-old Brian Keith Leeman of Joelton deceased in the bathroom of his room. An autopsy will be conducted.

Leeman's mother, 68-year-old Judy Moon was found dead Aug. 6 on the floor of her home. A friend asked police to conduct a welfare check after not hearing from Moon for several days.

Leeman lived with Moon.

Inside his motel room were a cellphone belonging to Moon and her car keys. However, Moon's 2007 silver Ford Focus bearing Tennessee license plate number H5194G was not on the motel property or at neighboring businesses. Efforts continue to locate the car.
