Sheriff: 2 adults, 1 child dead in Lincoln Co. home

FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department is searching for a person of interest in the slaying of two women and a child whose bodies were found Monday inside a Middle Tennessee home about a mile from the Alabama border.

WAFF-TV reports 24-year-old Warren Vincent Crutcher is considered to be armed and dangerous.

Lincoln County Sheriff Murray Blackwelder said two of the dead were adult women and one was a 1-year-old child.

A 3-year-old was found alive in the home. The boy's godmother, Constance Winston, told the station that the boy was calling relatives saying that he couldn't wake anyone up.

Deputies said a fourth body was found Monday in a nearby home. They said the cases may be connected, but they have not released any details.
