CRAB ORCHARD, Tenn. — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says four people have been found shot to death in a car in Cumberland County.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm says the agency's violent crime response team was called to the scene on Renegade Mountain near Crossville this morning.

She said the car was found near an abandoned guard shack at a resort community about 50 miles west of Knoxville.

The Renegade Mountain Resort was built in 1969 as part of a gated community, and at one time had a lounge, restaurant, lodge and ski slope. The lodge burned down in 2000.

Homeowners association president John Moore said the resort's owners got rid of the controlled access in 2010. He said a resident found the bodies on the way to work in the morning.
