LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office has identified the victims that were found at a property on Black Road in the Piney Chapel community.
Investigators say the three people were found dead at a residence in the 22000 block of Black Road during a welfare check on Wednesday. The incident appears to be a domestic double murder/suicide.
The victims, 48-year-old Jerry Thomas Phillips and 52-year-old Jamie Lynn Phillips were apparently killed by their 31-year-old Robert Earl Gilchrist III, who shot himself inside the residence after the first deputy arrived. Gilchrist was Jamie Lynn Phillips’s son.
