MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. - For several days, the Marshall County Sheriff's Office kept tight-lipped about the deaths of two people on Pea Ridge Road in the Asbury community.

Denie and Pamela Tucker were found dead inside their home the evening of Friday, September 11.  Many asked questions about the couple's death, but no answers were given.

A week later, Sheriff Scott Walls now says the couple was murdered, and says people have come forward to offer a $10,000 reward in the case.  The reward is for information that leads to the arrest and conviction  of the person(s) responsible.

The Tuckers are well known in the area and the family has received an outpouring of support and condolences on social media, and across Marshall County.

WHNT News 19 spoke with officials with the Marshall County Sheriff's Office on September 21 about the case.  Investigators say they are working hard to develop additional information, and are still conducting interviews.  They still have a presence at the couple's home.
