Three dead in double murder-suicide in North Cove

Three people were found dead at a residence in North Cove Wednesday morning.
At approximately 6:30 a.m., McDowell County sheriff’s deputies and EMS paramedics responded to 182 Lonon Lane in Marion to find two males and a female suffering from fatal gunshot wounds.
An unknown man had called and reported a possible shooting at the residence.
Inside the home, investigators found the bodies of 39-year-old Kacey Case Haney, of 182 Lonon Lane, and 49-year-old Christopher Scott Childers, of 43 E. Oakwood Drive in Nebo. Outside the home, they located the body of Jeffrey Dale Haney, 48, whose address is also listed as 182 Lonon Lane.
“Our investigation is very much ongoing, but, at this time, it appears most likely that Jeffrey Haney may have shot the other two then turned the gun on himself after making the call to 911,” said McDowell County Sheriff Dudley Greene.
Jeffrey Haney is the estranged husband of Kacey Haney.
“The next of kin have been notified,” Greene stated. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to those left behind.”
Agents with the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation are aiding with the examination of the case.
