Sheriff's Office investigating death of Louisville couple

Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong said today the Sheriff's Office is investigating the deaths of a Louisville couple. The man and woman were found dead in their home at around 8:30 Sunday evening.

Rebecca A. Adkins, 53, and Steven R. Adkins, 54, of Chandler Road, Louisville, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Blount County Sheriff's Office responded to the Adkins' residence last night after a family member found the couple inside of their residence on Chandler Road. It is not known how long the couple had been inside of the residence. The Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division is investigating.

Autopsies on both victims are scheduled for this morning at the University of Tennessee Medical Center.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
