BYRDSTOWN, Tenn. (AP) — A sheriff says two bodies found at a business in north Tennessee were a father and son who were working at the family-owned store.

According to media reports, Sheriff Dan Dowdy says the bodies were found Thursday morning after deputies were called to the Sugar Shack in Pickett County, which is located along the Tennessee-Kentucky state line.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says the case is being investigated as a possible double homicide, though the agency hasn't released how the victims died or their names.

Spokesman Josh DeVine said agents are collecting evidence and trying to figure out a timeline for what happened. He said video surveillance at the store would be reviewed.

Anyone who might know something about the crime to call (800) TBI-FIND, or (800) 824-3463.
