Investigation underway after two Georgia firefighters were involved in an altercation before they went missing and their bodies were found in a car in Tennessee.


The bodies of Chandler Kuhbander and Reaegan Anderson were discovered on Sunday in a car in Cocke County, Tennessee.

Both were employed as firefighters in Hinesville, Georgia for the Liberty County Fire Department, and had been reported missing before their bodies were discovered.

The mysterious disappearance came after a police report from June 22nd cited an incident between the pair at a local Olive Garden in Pooler, Georgia.

The pair had previously been romantically involved, but were now separated as Kuhbander was on a date with someone else at the Olive Garden.

Anderson went into the restaurant where she reportedly caused a disturbance then walked outside and keyed Kuhbander's vehicle.

Following the incident Anderson was charged with criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.

The Liberty County Fire Department conducted a welfare check at Anderson’s home where no one was found inside, though a note that was thought to have been left by Anderson was.

Kuhbander was last seen on surveillance footage leaving the gym around 11.40 on the day he disappeared.

The Hinesville Police Department said that details pertaining to the discovery of the bodies, the vehicle and the events leading to their deaths are currently not available at this time.

A spokesperson for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told The Independent that the investigation was active and ongoing.

“At the request of 4th Judicial District Attorney General Jimmy Dunn, TBI agents are working alongside the Cocke County Sheriff’s Office to investigate the circumstances leading to the death of two people after their bodies were discovered inside a vehicle along Hollow Road in Cosby on Sunday morning,” the statement read.

“The bodies have been sent for an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death and to be positively identified. At this time, the investigation remains active and ongoing."
