Police are seeking information from the public in a pair of unsolved Kingsport murders, saying the same man is suspected of killing both victims inside their homes.

For the past year detectives at the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office and Kingsport Police Department have been working together on the homicides, which occurred within 11 months time.

On Nov. 29 of 2010 Gary Lavon Jones, 53, was found lying in a pool of blood on the floor of his Lone Oak Drive mobile home. He was stabbed multiple times, with SCSO Det. Matt Price saying the suspect was a friend.
