Monday, June 23, 2014

East Ridge Police said neighbors found a pair dead at a home on Ealy Road on Saturday after they became curious there was no activity at the residence.

East Ridge. Police said, "There is a death investigation underway. The incident is not currently classified as a homicide. ERPD is currently awaiting results from the Hamilton County Medical Examiner's Office where the remains are undergoing analysis."

The bodies were found at 4016 Ealy Road after neighbors said they saw newspapers and mail piling up and went to check on the couple.

The neighbors went in the unlocked front door and found one person dead in a chair and another in a hallway.

The man in the chair had his hand on a .380-caliber pistol that was in his lap. He appeared to have died from a single gunshot wound to the right side of the head above the ear. There was one round still in the barrel and three in the magazine.

There was a spent bullet on a living room window sill that appeared to have passed through a chair, hit a wall and cracked the living room window before coming to rest on the sill.

The woman was found lying on her back in the hallway near a cordless telephone. The cause of her death was being investigated.
