PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. — Pigeon Forge investigators have released the identity of the man and woman found dead in a cabin last week.

Late in the evening of Sept. 4, officers responded to a cabin on Conner Drive after someone reported hearing gunshots.

When they arrived at the cabin, they found Randall Hawkins dead of gunshot wounds in the driveway.

Inside the house, they found Debbie Hunter dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Investigators said the two were from the Knoxville area and were in a relationship.

Investigators said it appeared that Hunter shot Hawkins then herself, but that the investigation was still ongoing. Earlier they said they were not looking for other suspects in relation to the shootings.

According to Hawkins' obituary on Bridges Funeral Home's website, family and friends gathered for his funeral and burial on Sept. 10. He had turned 64 in April.
