    TN - Couple Found Dead In Rental Cabin Hot Tub, Gatlinburg, 9 April 2016

    http://pix11.com/2016/04/10/man-woma...ad-in-hot-tub/

    A couple in their 60's was found deceased in a hot tub at a rental couple. LEO do not suspect foul play. Identities will be released Monday, after next of kin notifications are made.

    So sad. I wonder if they were accidentally electrocuted. Or if it was an indoor garden tub/Jacuzzi and perhaps carbon monoxide was to blame. Most hot tubs in these type of rentals in East Tennessee are out on a corner of a deck. Inside tubs are referred to as garden tubs or jacuzzis. Tragic, no matter what the scenario is.

    Just last Monday, a tourist helicopter crashed in Pigeon Forge, killing all five aboard, 3 miles from Dollywood.

    FWIW This was not a married couple. I am wondering if this could have been suicide?

    How can you be certain, alwaysshocked? I suppose one can infer that they were not married, but it is not stated as fact.

    The article also says no foul play suspected. In this case, I'm going with accidental as my first guess, as murder suicide would involve foul play from the murderer.

    Second guess would be dual suicides.

    Just MOO.

    There was a story a while back of a man who had a heart attack in a hot tub and then apparently fell over pinning his companion underneath him and drowning her. I can't even imagine.

    We are in the midst of planning a Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg summer vacation. Within the last couple of weeks we've had news of the helicopter crash, the hot tub deaths, and today the Space Needle suicide. It's kind of putting a damper on things. Obviously wont stop us, but it's been a weird couple of weeks!

    No kidding! I am wondering if the Chamber of Commerce is trying to keep the information quiet and that's why I cannot find any new info.

    Found the link. It does not say the couple is married or not married. They are having a joint funeral service in Williamsburg, Kentucky. Nothing about cause or manner of death.

    You are right - I ASSumed they were not married because their names were different. I should have known better than to ASSume that!

    The "she was married to someone else" also may or may not mean anything. Because sometimes people have been separated for years but not legally divorced. That linked obit says she did in a "medical center". Does that mean she was still alive when someone found them or maybe someone just didn't want to say "died .... wherever". But you don't really need to put where a person died in their obituary if you don't want to.

    If it was carbon monoxide they'd know it already from blood tests. If it was suicide, I suppose pills would have been used since there are "no signs of foul play". Or, I suppose it still could have been murder/suicide without signs of foul play, if one slipped something into the others' drink.

    Oh, I just watch too many crime detective shows!

    Dr. Levin (the gentleman who died) is fairly well known in the physics world.

    I have been separated from my husband for six plus years. He has been kind enough to carry my medical insurance. I have been in a committed relationship for several years. So I am not sure what they aren't married means.....

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
