Smyrna Couple Found Dead in Home

Preliminary investigation suggests the Wednesday incident was the result of a domestic dispute.

Smyrna police are investigating the double shooting death of a Smyrna couple that occurred late Wednesday.

Authorities said William Whitaker, 44, and his wife Lynn Whitaker, 48, were found dead by their 25-year-old son at about 10 p.m. Wednesday in their townhouse on Cumberland Valley Drive.

Preliminary investigation suggests that the incident was the result of a domestic dispute, and there's no danger to the community, said Smyrna police spokesman Michael Smith.

An autopsy was preformed this morning by the Cobb County Medical Examiner.
