        Four bodies with gunshot wounds found in a car on Renegade mountain of Cumberland County are believed to be the works of 26 year old Jacob Allen Bennett.
        TBI Investigators say Bennett was picked up in Rhea County while still on parole for previous charges.
        He is the only suspect in the quadruple homicide of 16 year old John Lajuenesse, 17 year olds Dominic Davis and  Steven Presley and 22 year old Danielle Jacobson.    
        "Anytime you have homicides and death of life it's certainly sad and tragic but when you have the loss of lives of young people it's much more so, said Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Donald Andrews.
        Investigators believe the victims were directly targeted but are still digging into the case to find out why.
     Bennett hasn't been charged with the murders at this point.
     Investigators are still gathering evidence.
