TARPON SPRINGS – A Tarpon Springs city employee died in a murder-suicide Monday morning in Sevier County, Tennessee.

“The city of Tarpon Springs Police Department was notified late yesterday (Aug. 11, 2014) of the tragic death of one of our employees, Genevieve Crosby,” according to a press release sent out Tuesday afternoon.

Crosby, 48, an employee since 2004, was the city’s marketing and communications coordinator for the Department of Cultural and Civic Services.

“Acting City Manager, Chief of Police Robert Kochen, speaks for all of us in extending our thoughts and prayers to her family and friends,” the press release continues. “The city notified employees today and will be making grief counselling services available to those employees that wish to participate.”

Sevier County Sheriff Ron Seals said a 911 call came in about 11:50 a.m. Aug. 11 from a female caller who said two people were shot inside a rental cabin. Police and emergency medical services responding to the scene found a Crosby on a bed suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, but still alive. She was transported to Leconte Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

According to the sheriff’s report, she died on the way to the hospital.

Crosby’s husband, Richard, 52, was pronounced dead at the scene from a single gunshot wound. The sheriff’s office concluded that Richard shot Genevieve and then shot himself. The shooting was ruled a murder-suicide.

The couple had been vacationing with Genevieve’s father, mother and daughter.

Revised to add state where shooting occurred.
