Wednesday, July 3, 2013

A murder suicide is suspected in two deaths Tuesday night in East Ridge.

On Tuesday, about 11:45 p.m., East Ridge Police responded to 3613 Wimberly Lane. Family members were concerned because Susan Ingram, a resident of the address, had not reported to work at McKee Bakery. They were unable to get anyone to come to the door, so family members forced the door and located Ms. Ingram in bed suffering from a single gunshot wound to her head. Family members also located her husband, James Ingram, in the bed with a single gunshot wound to the head. 

The family exited the residence and phoned police. On arrival, police established a crime scene perimeter and conducted a search of the house. Mr. Ingram was found with a small handgun in his hand. The handgun had two expended cartridges.

East Ridge detectives, along with an investigator with the Hamilton County Medical Examiners’ office, had the bodies sent to the medical examiners’ office on Amnicola Highway. Preliminary examinations have been performed and officers are awaiting a final report. 

Early indications are that Mr. Ingram shot his wife prior to shooting himself.
