An investigation into an apparent murder-suicide involving two elderly people in McMinn County began with a disturbing phone call.
The sheriff's office says Tuesday night, someone from a Riceville home called 911, said "murder-suicide" and then hung up the phone. Dispatchers tried to call the number back, but could not get through.
When they arrived at the house, 67-year-old Catherine Dickson answered the door. She said she couldn't find her husband.
