Police: 2 adults, 1 child found dead in Lincoln County home

NASHVILLE (AP) - Police in Tennessee say the bodies of 3 people, including two adults and a child, were found dead inside a home in Middle Tennessee about a mile from the Alabama border.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said Monday afternoon that the three people were found dead shortly before noon inside the home on Huntsville Highway in Lincoln County, about 100 miles south of Nashville. Another child, who was alive, was found at the scene, but TBI didn't say whether the child was injured.

No arrests have been made. Helm says investigators are working to develop a suspect.

The TBI said that the causes of the deaths aren't yet known.
