Investigation Underway After Two Firefighters Are Found Dead Hundreds of Miles from Home

A frantic search for two missing firefighters from coastal Georgia ended tragically over the weekend, hundreds of miles away in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains.

Raegan Anderson and Chandler Kuhbander — both 24 and working for the Liberty County, Georgia, Fire Department — were a former couple who had been romantically involved since high school, Kuhbander’s mother, Jane Kuhbander, told local news outlet WJCL.

Now, authorities are awaiting the results of autopsy reports to announce how they died.

Trouble involving the two became part of the public record June 22, when Anderson was arrested for vandalizing Kuhbander’s vehicle after she confronted him while he was on a date with another woman at an Olive Garden in Hinesville, Georgia, according to WTOC-TV in Savannah.

“Ms. Anderson caused a disturbance with Mr. Kuhbander, and she walked outside and keyed his vehicle,” the station reported, quoting a Hinesville police report.

On June 24, Anderson was demoted at the fire department and placed on administrative leave, WTOC reported.

That was also the last day Kuhbander’s mother spoke to her son, according to WJCL in Savannah.

She told the station, her son had said Anderson had been “blowing up his phone” and threatening suicide.

The two went missing on June 25, when a deputy chief at the fire department asked police to check on Anderson’s welfare.

She was not at home, but officers found a note indicating she might harm herself, WTOC reported.

Kuhbander, meanwhile, was last seen on video leaving a gym in Savannah at about 11:30 that morning. His vehicle was found in the gym’s parking lot.

His mother told WJCL that the mall where the gym is located had let her see video that showed Anderson’s car in the parking lot while Kuhbander worked out.

“At 11:40 my son walks out of the building, and he looks very comfortable, like he just had his workout,” she told the station. “He doesn’t look rushed as he walks through the parking lot. After that, we don’t see him again.”

That afternoon, according to WTOC, Anderson is recorded on video getting gas in northwestern South Carolina. Kuhbander is not seen, but his mother told WTOC that his phone was tracked to the town.

The bodies of the two were found inside Anderson’s vehicle in Cosby, Tennessee, a tiny mountain hamlet in the Gatlinburg area.

In light of the discovery, Jane Kuhbander’s interview with WJCL Thursday became particularly poignant.

“You don’t want to be in this position. And when you see it on television, I can see how they feel,” she told the station. “Then it hits you, like, I am that person. I do feel that way. This is terrifying, and you have no answers.”

The Cocke County, Tennessee, Sheriff’s Office and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation are leading the investigation, according to USA Today.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
