SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Officials say a man accused of murdering his mother and attacking his grandmother is in custody. The Sevier County Sheriff’s Office said Josh Carr is in custody after allegedly killing his mother, Pam Carr, Wednesday morning, September 2, and stabbing his grandmother at around 5:45 a.m. He was wanted on homicide and aggravated assault charges and is considered armed and dangerous by investigators. Investigators said he was found in Michigan by Michigan State Police around 7 p.m. September 4. Carr’s grandmother, who has not been identified, was at home resting with family as of Thursday. Officials said she was going to be fine. Investigators released new photos of Carr, along with information about his vehicle, which appeared to have been taken from Carr’s Facebook page, like this one featured below. It was posted on September 1, just a day before the attack. Carr appeared to post more than 60 times on Facebook Tuesday. On August 30, he posted what appeared to be a manifesto he titled “Gods Plan,” which included seven items, such as “learn Sumerian,” “unite my people” and “reclaim my land (for my People).” Thursday afternoon, the Sevierville Police Department received a report of a possible sighting of Carr outside of Sevier County High School around 3:45 p.m. Once officers arrived to the school, they along with school staff searched the school building and grounds. Carr was not found. SPD said a ‘misunderstanding’ between students lead to the report. Copyright 2020 WVLT. All rights reserved.
