CANYON LAKE, Texas — A suspect is custody after allegedly stabbing a man to death and leading authorities on a high-speed pursuit in the victim's vehicle, according to the Comal County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say 20-year-old Brody Tyler Davis, of Converse, reached speeds of 100 mph before New Braunfels police disabled it with spikes and took him into custody, where they say he confessed to the stabbing.

Deputies responded to the 4000 block of South Cranes Mill Road and found a man dead on the side of the road with an apparent stab wound to the neck. The victim has been identified as 53-year-old Kyle Leon Foster, of Canyon Lake.
