Case Being Treated As A Homicide, Sheriff Burns Says



A man whose body was discovered shortly before noon Tuesday inside his house at 554 Old Mountain Road was identified by Sheriff Steve Burns as Donald R. Gunter, 69.

"We're working it as a homicide," Burns said today.

A friend who stopped by the house Tuesday found Gunter's body. Burns declined to elaborate on other facts of the case this morning.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) was called in Tuesday to assist the Greene County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators spent Tuesday night processing the crime scene.

"(The) TBI was requested to investigate at the request of the District Attorney General's Office. It's an ongoing investigation," agency spokeswoman Illana Tate said this morning in an email response to questions.

The house is about one mile off of Camp Creek Road, near the Camp Creek community.

Gunter is a brother of Greene County Register of Deeds Joy Rader Nunnally.
