Two found dead in Fairview Chase home

The Covington News - - Front page -

Of­fice Lt. Keith Crum, a call came in to New­ton County 911 around 10: 15 a. m. and the caller — who has yet to be iden­ti­fied — threat­ened vi­o­lence against a woman. Deputies made their way to the home but were un­able to make con­tact with the res­i­dents.

The Cov­ing­ton/ New­ton County SWAT Team were called to the scene and, af­ter sev­eral at­tempts to make con­tact with the res­i­dents, made en­try into the home around 11: 30 a. m. Once in­side they found the cou­ple de­ceased.

There were no other peo­ple in­side the home at the time, al­though the cou­ple does have two adult chil­dren. Their daugh­ter has been no­ti­fied but their son had not yet been reached as of press time, and names are be­ing with­held pend­ing his no­ti­fi­ca­tion, ac­cord­ing to Crum.

“ There is no ev­i­dence to ex­clude this as a mur­der-sui­cide,” said Crum. “ But no fi­nal determination has been made yet, as to cause of death.”
