SEVIERVILLE (WATE) – A year after two people were killed in a cabin fire in Sevierville, family of the victims are asking for law enforcement to investigate what happened to one of the victims and what started the fire.
In April of 2014 a group of 22 people were staying in a cabin from Indianapolis and Louisville. A fire broke out in the early morning hours. Ricky Hudson, 56, was killed in the fire. Hudson’s step-grandson, Tyveon Temple, 5, was believed to have died in the fire, however his remains were never found.

“In the midst of the chaos, the location of Tyveon Temple, the youngest of the children, became and is still currently unknown,” the group wrote on their Change.org petition. “His mother was only told that there was a ‘possibility’ that he had been incinerated. A proper, thorough investigation needs to be done.”
The petition goes on to ask the investigation to be reopened so that Shayna Brown, Tyveon Temple’s mother can closure about what happened to her youngest child.
The group, Justice for Tyveon, hosted a rally and march in Downtown Indianapolis in January. “We stand here today, not only for justice for Tyveon, but so this will not happen to another family,” the group wrote on their Facebook page.
