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.
