Fort Know, KY: Ft. Knox couple who died Friday identified

FORT KNOX, Ky. (WHAS11) – The Fort Knox couple who died Friday in a double shooting have been identified as Spc. Christopher and Krista Meeks.

Police responded to their residence in the Oak Park neighborhood shortly before 4 A.M.  after receiving a 911 call from their residence.

Responding officers heard gunfire and entered the home where they found the pair with gunshot wounds.

The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command said the incident may be a result of an apparent domestic dispute.

According to police reports, Spc. Meeks was a human resources specialist with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division. He’s been at Fort Knox since March 2011.
The last murder at Fort Knox was in 1993.

The names of the victims will not be released by authorities until 24-hours after the families are notified. Two children at the home at the time of the shootings are now in the custody of the Kentucky Department for Community Based Services.
