Father, son found dead in Murray County


by Andy Johns

A man and his son were found dead in Murray County this morning.

Deputies found 39-year-old David Graham and his 3-year-old son Easton around 8:30 a.m., according to Murray County Chief Deputy Ray Sitton.

Sitton said the case is not being treated as a homicide and investigators were not searching for any suspects.

Graham’s mother was supposed to babysit the 3-year-old Tuesday, but she called police when they didn’t show up.

Authorities found the victims in a 1984 Corvette at their home on Old Highway 411 in the Ramhurst community, according to Sitton.

He said more details would be available after investigators at the state crime lab can perform autopsies.
