Investigators have identified the father and his 8-year-old son who died Monday in what investigators are said appeared to be a murder-suicide.
James Reagan, 38, and Clark Reagan, 8, were found in their Savannah Village Home around 9:30 a.m., according to Maryville Police.
The mother and father were separated, according to Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp.
Clark went to Foothills Elementary, according to Maryville City Schools. His father was also a first-grade teacher there.
Maryville Schools released the following statement Monday afternoon:
“As released by our police department earlier this afternoon, a Maryville father and son passed this morning in a terrible tragedy. Words cannot express our overwhelming sense of devastation and grief. We know the media will have many questions, so we are confirming that the two involved were, in fact, a teacher and a student in the Maryville school district. Names will be released by the family in the hours and days ahead. Our hearts are also broken for our colleague, friend, and the loving mother of this young victim. Parents of children who attend Foothills Elementary who feel their student(s) would benefit from counseling services are invited to join us between 9 a.m. and noon, tomorrow (June 11), in the library at Montgomery Ridge Intermediate (835 Montgomery Lane, Maryville, TN).”
