Knox County, TN: Couple found shot in West Knox apartment died in murder/suicide

The Knox County Sheriff's Office has concluded that the couple found shot in their West Knox County apartment this week died in a murder/suicide.

The son of Cindy Jo Flanary, 48, found the bodies of his mother and her longtime boyfriend, Alan Ollis, on Wednesday. They lived in the Heritage Lake Apartments, off Grove Lake Way, just off Westland Drive and Pellissippi Parkway.

After a preliminary autopsy, the medical examiner believes Ollis shot Flanary once in the head, then turned the gun on himself. Both were found dead in the bathroom. There were no signs of a struggle.

The autopsy also revealed that the couple had likely been dead since late Sunday night or early Monday morning.
