After that, Dorsey hopped into another vehicle and drove off. In that car, he rear-ended a Ford Mustang driven by the 23-year-old Stevens and his wife, Aileen.
The Stevens reportedly stopped to survey the damage, thinking it was a standard fender bender. That’s when Dorsey took the couple hostage at gunpoint, ordering them to drive him to their Morrison, Miss., home.
“When they arrived, it appears Dorsey took two additional firearms from the residence, swapped vehicles to a blue Toyota Rav4, and forced the man and woman to accompany him,” Rausch said.
At some point over the course of several hours, Dorsey reportedly shot and killed Stevens in front of his wife and forced him from the vehicle.
The victim’s mother, Michelle Stevens, told news outlet WTVC that Stevens reportedly begged Dorsey “not to hurt his wife and baby.”
Cops later found Stevens’ body along Interstate 24.
Aileen was reportedly forced back into the stolen vehicle as Dorsey drove back on the highway. That’s when authorities located the vehicle as it travelled eastbound.
After a short chase, the vehicle flipped and crashed. Rausch said Dorsey shot and killed himself. Aileen was found in the back seat and was rescued by cops.
The suspect had no prior adult arrest record in Tennessee but had an extensive one in Missouri.
