Burned Bodies Found, Likely Homicide

news admin

An East Tennessee sheriff says the deaths of three people whose bodies were found in a mobile home fire were probably intentional.
Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes said investigators are treating the incident as a homicide.
Firefighters responded to a fire at the trailer Saturday night. Neighbors thought the couple who lived there with their 3-year-old son weren't home because their car was missing. When firefighters returned after daylight Sunday, they found a severely burned adult body. The remains of a second adult were found later in the day and the body of a small child was discovered Monday afternoon.
Fontes said authorities are looking for the couple's car - a white 2000 Nissan Maxima with a broken windshield, a loud exhaust and Cocke County license plate 810-YCW.
