Carroll Co. Deaths Ruled Murder Suicide
Investigators in Carroll County have released new details about a weekend shooting that claimed two lives. Sheriff Andy Dickson said an autopsy has revealed that the shooting inside a Bruceton home was likely not a double murder. Deputies said Sandra Hart, 59, and her daughter’s boyfriend Stevan Lowe, 53, were each shot once. However, investigators said they believe the person who pulled the trigger was also one of the shooting victims. “From what we’ve received back from the medical examiner’s office after the autopsies and also from the evidence that was collected on the scene, it’s leading us to believe at this time that it was more of a murder-suicide than it would have been a double homicide,” said Sheriff Andy Dickson. Sheriff Dickson said despite these preliminary autopsy results, their investigation is far from over. Deputies have not officially said what prompted the shooting.
