NEWPORT-Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes reported this
morning that, as he has stated before, his department is treating the deaths of
two bodies found decomposing in a Cosby residence last week as
"I do know the cause of death, but am not releasing that
information at this time," Sheriff Fontes stated in a text message to the
Newport Plain Talk.
Sheriff Armando Fontes stated on Monday, Oct. 8, that
"there is a clear indication of serious substance abuse issues" with
the two people whose decomposing bodies were found Thursday, Oct. 4, in a Ball
Hollow Road residence in Cosby.
Sheriff Fontes also stated in the press release issued
Monday that, "At this time, we do not see any potential for the public to
be concerned for their personal safety."
