Tennessee slayings: Death toll 7; suspect in custody

WESTMORELAND Police on Sunday raised the death toll at two homes in rural Tennessee to seven and said they are investigating whether a suspect captured after an hourslong manhunt knew the victims.

Michael Cummins, 25, was taken into custody Saturday night after being shot about a mile away from one of the Sumner County crime scenes, said Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Josh DeVine.

Police said officers responding to a 911 call from a family member led to the original discovery of four bodies and an injured person at the first home. The injured victim was transported to the hospital with unspecified injuries. On Sunday, the TBI said in a statement the bodies of two more victims had been found at the home.

Another body was found Saturday at another home in the area. The TBI believes the two scenes are related. The slayings were near the town of Westmoreland.

1. Did some searching but couldn't find - do they have any idea why?

Was he just homicidal?

2. What I've found is that all of the victims were close relatives of the suspect

3. He knew all of the victims

I grew up not far from there. This is a disturbing, disturbing story and you can expect to hear more details in the coming days.
