Bedford – At 8:36 a.m. the Lawrence County Sheriffs Department responded to a shots fired call at 1051 Trenton Circle, Bedford. Upon their arrival deputies discovered a male and female subject deceased from apparent gunshot wounds. The male subject was recognized by deputies as a Bedford Police Officer, an agency the Sheriffs Department works closely with. This prompted the Lawrence County Sheriff to contact the Indiana state Police Bloomington Post to head up the investigation. Preliminary investigations indicate Kathryn R. Tucker, 29 had recently ended a relationship with Kyle Brown, 35. This morning Mr. Brown drove his personal vehicle to her residence at which time he made entry into her home. According to the Lawrence County Coroner, John Sherrill, both subjects died from apparent gunshot wounds. Mr. Brown’s fatal wound appeared to be consistent with a self inflicted one.

Comments I noticed:
...she was my wife.rip baby your husband ron tucker will always love you....
...A friend of mine said he used to work at G.E., and he was a psycho then. I just hope the Bedford Cops don't try to pin this rap on the guy who hid in the closet at the time of the shooting. This guy was trying to get back with his ex-wife/girlfriend when all this took place. But knowing the cops here in Bedford that is just what they will try to do -- ramrod an innocent person -- just to cover up one of their own...
...He shot her 8 times....she had made several calls to BPD reporting his stalking. and threats...that should be evidence thats trackable....right? Poor husband who tried to save her...I hear he was questioned "EXCESSIVELY". When help finally arrived it was to late to save yet another woman from violence...
