Update: Kingsport man killed in home fire, body discovered by son

KINGSPORT — Some seven hours after a Monday morning blaze gutted a Kingsport home — and following multiple searches of the structure by fire and police personnel — the body of the 68-year-old resident was found inside.

The victim was discovered by his son, who entered the charred remains of the house after authorities left the scene, allegedly reiterating before they departed that no one was inside.

"I wouldn't have had any peace unless I looked for myself," said Blountville's Brian Moody, identifying the man as Lonnie Moody, his father.
