Police Chief Thomas Ankrom said he received a call from the owner of the Morris Street home around 1:30 p.m. Monday. The landlord reported that he had not heard from his tenants for several days.

That’s when a man was found dead at the top of the stairs with a gunshot wound, Ankrom said. A woman was also found on the second floor with gunshot wounds.

Ankrom said it was the first double homicide in the county in more than a decade.

Police said the victims were all middle-aged and had lived at the home for about three months.

The Greene County Coroner identified the victims as 47-year-old Judy Hunter and 54-year-old Kevin Williford.

“The neighbor downstairs said they hadn’t heard from them for about 10 days,” Ankrom said. “They were dead for a while. I don’t know the exact time period at this point.”

Ankrom said his department is currently executing search warrants for various items as they work to track down the suspect.

“We are doing everything we can to identify those responsible and bring them to justice as quickly as possible. I will make sure my men and women patrol as hard as they usually do,” Ankrom said.

District Attorney Greene said he believes this is an isolated incident and that the public should not be alarmed. The victims have yet to be identified, as police are still working to notify relatives.
