|On the morning of Sunday, November 3, 2019 at approximately 11:00 AM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers were summoned to a mobile home located at 390 Barnett Drive, lot #50, in Kingsport, at the request of the property landlord, to check the welfare of the resident, Jennifer D. Carr, due to concerns over alleged marital issues between her and her husband, Tobias W. Carr.
Upon arrival, Officers spoke with family members, gathered outside of the mobile home, who shared additional information to give cause for further concern for Mrs. Carr’s well-being. Officers spoke with Mr. Carr, and ordered him outside while they conducted a protective sweep of the interior of the residence. Mrs. Carr was located inside the residence, deceased from what appeared to be multiple stab wounds.
Detectives from the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division responded to the scene. After extensive further investigation, Detectives developed sufficient probable cause to determine that Mrs. Carr had died at the hands of her husband. A warrant was obtained, charging Mr. Carr with 1) Second Degree Murder and 2) Tampering with Evidence.
Mr. Carr was incarcerated in the Kingsport City Jail, where as of the time of issuance of this release, he remains confined, pending arraignment, with no current eligibility for bond. As this remains an active homicide investigation by the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division, and in the interest of future prosecution, no additional details will be released at this time.
