(WMC-TV) – A brother and sister are both dead after police say one killed the other.
Lauderdale County sheriff's deputies say the incident happened on Barfield Road.
According to law enforcement, Lynn Conrad stabbed his sister several times in the mobile home that they shared. He put her body in his truck and drove to a remote area to dump her body. His truck got stuck so he started walking to a nearby home to make a phone call. That is when deputies say he suffered the heart attack that killed him.
Conrad has a lengthy criminal record. According to friends and family, Conrad served time in the 1970s after murdering a man during a drug deal.
Action News 5's Janice Broach is on the scene working to learn more about what happened.
