SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (April 13, 2014) — Tennessee officials have confirmed an Indianapolis man and child were killed after a cabin they were vacationing in caught fire Saturday.
The man was identified as 56-year-old Ricky Hudson. Crews continue to search for 5-year-old Tyveon Temple’s remains.
Hudson was pronounced dead at LeConte Medical Center, suffering from “major lacerations due to busting out some glass.” An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
Police said 22 people were inside the cabin when the fire broke out. Many of them were family members and family friends from Indianapolis and Louisville.
More than a dozen investigators are still looking for the boy, who was sharing a bed with relatives when the fire broke out. Officials said everyone but Temple made it out of the cabin.
In Indianapolis, dozens of supporters gathered for a vigil to remember the victims Sunday. FOX59’s Eric Levy was there and will have the latest on this story and reaction from family members beginning at 10 p.m. on FOX59 News.
