An elderly man was found shot to death in his home Sunday evening.
Authorities identified the victim as 85-year-old Russell C. Blevins of 138 Hart Orchard Road.
“I believe a family member hadn’t heard from him, went to check on him, found him and then notified the 911 center,” said Roane County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Tim Phillips.
No arrests had been made as of press time Tuesday.
“It’s an ongoing investigation,” Sheriff Jack Stockton said. “We’ve already interviewed a few subjects of interest. We’re running down all the leads we have.”
