Granddaughter, 18, of Late Country Singer Jean Shepard Found Stabbed to Death in Her Home
Her boyfriend was found dead with a gunshot wound, while her grandfather was also stabbed.
Two people have been found dead at the Tennessee home of the late country singer Jean Shepard, including her 18-year-old granddaughter.
Icie Hawkins was reportedly stabbed multiple times while her boyfriend, 21-year-old Travis Sanders, died from a gunshot wound.
Shepard’s husband Benny Birchfield, 79, was also found at the scene. He suffered multiple stab wounds but is reportedly expected to recover after undergoing surgery at the hospital.
Hendersonville police said they were called to the home at about 3 a.m. Saturday and found Birchfield wounded in the front yard when they arrived.
Police said they are not searching for a suspect in the attacks.
After interviewing Birchfield, who married Shepard 1968, officers were satisfied that "the situation was contained at the house," according to reports.
Police also said they do not have a motive yet.
Shepard, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, died of Parkinson's disease in September at the age of 85.
