A Twitter account purporting to be that of Bryce Williams, the man suspected of the murder of two journalists in the US, has posted a video of the brutal slaying on Twitter and Facebook

Using the Twitter account @bryce_williams7, the man also known as Vester Flanagan, posted some tweets about the incident before posting the video.

He then posted a video of the double murder.

The account has now been suspended by Twitter.

Alison Parker and photographer/cameraman Adam Ward were shot dead while filming a live news report on a CBS affiliate in Virginia this morning.

Williams is a former employee of the station the two journalists worked on WDBJ7.

As it stands he remains at large, though a massive manhunt is underway.

UPDATE: 16.56: It is now being reported that Williams has shot himself.
