The man who was considered a person of interest in a shooting investigation in Corbin has been found dead.
The Corbin Police Department said Eric Taylor was found deceased in Gray, in the same Jeep that witnesses reported he fled in after the shooting incident.
Taylor was listed as a person of interest in the shooting of his father, William Taylor, at Gulf Trailer Park on Jan. 22.
William Taylor shot in the side of his abdomen and was transported to Baptist Health for surgery. His current condition is unknown.
Eric was found by Knox County Sheriff's deputies approximately 100 yards off the roadway on an abandoned logging road.
The Knox County Coroner determined the death to be an apparent suicide.
Corbin detectives are continuing the investigation into both the shooting of William Taylor and death of Eric Taylor.
