Blount County authorities are still investigating after a couple in Townsend were found dead inside their home.
Officers were called to the home on Kelly Ridge Road Saturday after reports that a suspect had barricaded himself inside.
Officers attempted to make contact, but when they couldn’t the SWAT team made entry. They found Kenneth and Melinda Jacobs dead.
Kenneth worked in the music department at UT. Melinda was a lawyer who specialized in education law. Autopsies on the Jacobs were scheduled for Sunday at the Knox County Regional Forensic Center.
