Fatal House fire on Notchin Hill

On April 3, 2008 Loudon County Sheriffs Deputies responded to a report of a structure fire located at 10840 Notchin Hill Road just outside the City of Loudon. Upon arrival deputies discovered that the residence was on the ground and had been burning for some time. Due to the remote location of the residence and the weather on April 3, 2008, no one reported seeing smoke in the area and the residence was completely destroyed before being detected. After receiving numerous calls in reference to the welfare and whereabouts of the man who lived at this address, detectives responded to the scene. During a preliminary inspection of the scene, there were human remains located within the fire scene. Loudon County Criminal Investigators were able to recover the remains at approximately 5:30 p.m. A positive identification of the victim could not be obtained at the scene. The remains were transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Examiner’s office for their assistance in attempting to make a positive identification. Further information regarding the fire and death scene is not available at this time as the investigation continues. The Loudon County Sheriff’s Office appreciates your patience and we will make details available when possible. If there is anyone who believes they may have any pertinent information about this case, please contact the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office.
