COSBY-A family member reportedly went to a residence on Ball Hollow Road, in Cosby, on Thursday, Oct. 4, and made a gruesome discovery: two bodies found dead in the living room, where they had allegedly been decomposing for "probably" a few weeks, Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes said.

"We're treating (the case) as a homicide because we don't know yet what happened" to the middle-aged female and a male in his 30's, the sheriff stated.

"We have a very, very good idea who the bodies are, but we're waiting for a medical report" from a medical examiner at the University of Tennessee to perform autopsies, Sheriff Fontes said.

The bodies were found in a rural area at 4340 Ball Hollow Road.

He also said the UT medical examiner was waiting on dental records to be sent by the sheriff's investigators in the case, in order to determine definitely who the adults are.
