Updated: Jun 30

Two Georgia firefighters who went missing were found dead across state lines on Sunday, police said. 

According to the Hinesville Police Department, the bodies of missing firefighters Raegan Anderson and Chandler Kuhbander were discovered in Cocke County, Tennessee. Anderson's car was also discovered in Tennessee. 

Anderson was last seen on June 25 at the Liberty County Fire Services Station #1 in Midway, Georgia. Authorities believed that Anderson had been accompanied by Kuhbander, who had also been reported missing in Liberty County.

Kuhbander's vehicle was found in Savannah, and Anderson's vehicle was spotted in Richmond Hill before it was found in Tennessee.

Police said that details pertaining to the discovery of their bodies, vehicle and events leading to their deaths are not available at this time.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the bodies were found inside a car in Cosby, which is east of Pigeon Forge.

Autopsies to determine the cause of death will be conducted.

“These two extremely dedicated employees put their hearts and souls into protecting and serving the citizens of Liberty County,” Liberty County Fire Chief Brian Darby said in a Facebook post.

Authorities issued a lookout for Anderson on June 26. A Liberty County deputy fire chief asked the HPD to conduct a welfare check on Anderson, who previously had been in a romantic relationship with Kuhbander.

When officers got to Anderson’s home, they did not find anybody but they found a note that raised concerns about her state of mind, Hinesville Police Chief Tracey Howard said.

Anderson also had been arrested in Pooler recently for an incident involving Kuhbander. Anderson was arrested after keying Kuhbander’s car June 22.

Authorities said Anderson’s debit card was last used at a Circle K in South Carolina, and Kuhbander’s cell phone also pinged at the same location.

There also is video footage of Kuhbander leaving the Crunch Fitness at Oglethorpe Mall in Savannah but never getting into his vehicle. Anderson’s car was spotted in the same parking lot.

I believe I read somewhere that she was the aggressor and likely shot him, then herself.
