James Lynn Jr. is charged with killing his third wife Tonya Faye Lynn, and her body was discovered in a remote northeast Georgia well on Friday.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation Agent Jim Fullington said Tuesday authorities are now doing a “preliminary review” into the death of Lynn’s first wife, Julie Johnson Lynn. He says the probe will determine whether authorities will reopen the case.
Julie Lynn died in 1990 from a single gunshot wound to her head, and medical examiners ruled her death a suicide.
His second wife divorced him. She could not immediately be reached for comment.
Tonya Lynn’s funeral is scheduled for Tuesday at 3 p.m.
