Normandy Woman Found Dead In Tullahoma Pool

A Gentry Street resident made a startling discovery when he returned to his Tullahoma home Wednesday evening. William Frye of Gentry Street found a Normandy woman dead in his swimming pool. According to a police report by Tullahoma Officer Rana Pawlowski, around 1:48 p.m. as Frye was leaving home, he had given Linda Kaye Stephens, 39, of Normandy Road, Normandy permission to “float” in his pool. When he returned home around 6 p.m. he found her dead. When the officer arrived at the Gentry Street address she was informed that Frye had pulled the woman out of the pool. According to the police report, Stephens had, apparently, been dead for “a while.” Her body was transported to Harton Regional Medical Center. Investigator Sgt. Dale Stone had Stephen’s body transferred to the State Medical Examiner’s Office where an autopsy was performed yesterday.
