A Tullahoma man, Adam Alcocer, 49, was one of two people found dead in an Estill Springs home last week in what investigators believe to be a murder-suicide.

Alcocer is alleged to have killed his 48-year-old ex-wife, Kimberly Dawn Oakes, inside her home, and then taken his own life.

The Estill Springs Police Department responded to the home last Tuesday night, Aug. 13. 

According to Chief Matt Baker, the call came in to his department at 9:03 p.m. Officials with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department also responded to assist in the investigation.

Baker requested the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation be brought in to assist in the investigation. The bodies of the deceased were transported to the medical examiner’s office in Nashville.

Baker said Oakes worked at a restaurant near her home and was well-known in the area.

The investigation remains active and ongoing. The Franklin County Sheriff’s office and TBI are assisting the Estill Springs Police Department in the investigation.
