The Sequatchie County Sheriff's Office is investigating what Sheriff Ronnie Hitchcock says appears to be a murder/suicide just outside Dunlap city limits.
Neighbors discovered the bodies and the Sheriff's Office was called just after 11 a.m. Saturday. Deputies discovered the couple dead inside their home on Finley Circle.
Hitchcock says it appears the husband killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is joining the investigation.
