Shooting under scrutiny
By: CANDICE GRIMM, Staff Writer September 25, 2007

PIGEON FORGE - One person is dead and another wounded in a shooting and suspected arson which occurred Sunday morning at a mobile home on Spruce Court off McCarter Hollow Road.

Sevier County Sheriff Ron Seals confirmed Sunday afternoon that the report of a fire was received at 10:38 a.m. by the Pigeon Forge Volunteer Fire Department. Upon arrival firefighters found a white male suffering from gunshot wounds lying outside the mobile home, and located a second victim inside the home after the fire was knocked down.
"The investigation is being continued by the Sevier County Sheriff's Department Criminal Investigation Division (CID), and the Tennessee Bomb & Arson Squad," said Seals. "We have no suspects at this time, but we suspect this was not random."
Seals said the body was still in the home at 3 p.m. Sunday, and the crime investigation would begin after firefighters were able to put out hot spots.
While Seals declined to identify the victims, a woman who identified herself only as Shannon said the occupants of the home were her aunt and uncle Loretta and Michael Dodgen. The woman said she had been summoned from work by her cousin Kelly Higgins, a daughter of Loretta Dodgen and stepdaughter of Michael Dodgen. Higgins, who Shannon said resided in the home along with her brother Joe Higgins, had asked that Shannon come to the scene to be with her.
According to Shannon, Higgins reported she had been told by deputies that her mother was dead and her stepfather had been transported to The University of Tennessee Medical Center.
Seals confirmed the male victim had been transported to UT and was in stable condition.
Agencies assisting Pigeon Forge in fighting the fire were Sevierville Fire Department, Sevier County Volunteer Fire Department, Sevier County Fire & Rescue Squad, Wears Valley Volunteer Fire Department, and Catons Chapel Volunteer Fire Department.

Woman may have been murdered
By: JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer September 23, 2007

Sheriff's deputies are investigating the death of a local woman as a homicide.
Sixty-year-old Judy Ray Price was the widow of longtime Veterans Service Officer Dan Price.

Deputies said Price was found dead in her home on Mathis Branch Road at 1 p.m. Thursday. They are not releasing the cause of death at this time, although sources close to the investigation say it was believed to have been a shooting.
"We aren't releasing the cause of death until after the autopsy is completed," McCarter said.
Investigators also weren't prepared to say whether there were signs of forced entry or of a struggle at Price's home; he did say no neighbors reported hearing any kind of disturbance there.
They wouldn't say Friday whether it was a relative or another person who found the body. "She was found by another person," McCarter said.
The investigation was continuing Friday

i would like for some one to tell me where every body gets off saying poor connie as referred to in the other artical connie was judys son the baby. but if you ask the rest of the family connie or wife robin or a couple of the grandchildren bo , nicole hurst r right in there together. the police did lie detecters on a few of them some schemed by others failed the test and yet another even refused to take it. the rest of the family knows in there hearts what happened but the police are so focused on just a couple of people that no arrests have been made. so now the poor baby of the family is sitting up in his mommys home with all her stuff. all her money her car well he had her car till the wife wrecked it. and no one gets not even a picture to remember judy or her life. connies brother the oldest of the two has not been allowed in the house since his mother died. some body needs to find out what really happened. she was not robbed for any thing the people that shot her didn't take or destroy anything. but then why wouldthey, they would have to just clean it up when they went back to live . please the law is not getting anything done if there is anyone out there that knows anything please we need all of the killers to be punished not just a couple and then let the rest get away with it of couse as of right now they all are getting away with it. if you know any thing post it or send it to me at [email protected] leave a number and i can call and talk with you. donna is judys siter and is in real bad shape her self she wants to know that all the people who planned and killed her baby sister are got before something bad happens to her. as i said we in the family know who and what, we just need somebody to listen and act on it.

i'm the oldest son of judy price it's nice to hear how my brother grieved, when most all he could think of before and after the murder was where he was going to get his next pill or next bottle. it's nice to hear all the concern for a drunk and drug addict who could really care less about his mother while she was living let-a-lone after she was murdered. Every body really stands up and looks at ones who r doing wrong because thatís what people really want to see, but if every body open there eyes they could see the truth it is as plain as the nose on your face. What I want I will never get, which is the murders in front of me. But at least they could lock them up. They know who they are as well as I do. Why the hell can they not arrest them and lock them up.
