Two suspects are in custody after a homicide was reported on East Fairview Road on Wednesday, the Oak Ridge Police Department said.
Officers responded to a possible homicide at the home at about 7:39 p.m. Wednesday, a press release said.
Members of the ORPD Criminal Investigation Division and representatives of the Seventh Judicial District Attorney General’s Office worked through the night to investigate and were able to identify two suspects, the press release said.
At 4:26 a.m. Thursday, a search warrant was served at the home with help from ORPD SWAT and members of the Seventh Judicial District Crime Task Force.
A search of the home located the body of a 36-year-old female who died from an apparent homicide, the press release said. The identity of the victim is being withheld pending notification of the family.
Both suspects, who have not been publicly identified, remain in custody, the press release said. The investigation is ongoing, and no further information will be released at this time, police said.
