Guy, who lives in Baton Rouge and attended LSU until last year, traveled from Louisiana and visited his parents for the Thanksgiving holiday, authorities said.

The suspect is not employed and allegedly needed money, and had met with his parents to discuss the issue, sheriff's Maj. Michael MacLean said.

While a motive is not clear, investigators believe his parents were going to cut him off financially and had planned to talk to him over Thanksgiving about the matter, according to The Advocate

Guy was reportedly studying to be a plastic surgeon and had been in college for nine years while his parents supported him for nearly a decade.

The couple, who both worked as engineers, were ready to retire and stop providing him with money, Guy Sr's relatives told the Kingsport Time-News

Authorities are now looking into whether there was a life insurance policy he could collect, but they do not believe that was the case at this time, WBIR-TV reported.  

Both victims were stabbed and dismembered, with remains found in multiple rooms in their West Knox County house, the Tennessee sheriff's office said.

Guy arrived at his parents' home on Wednesday, spent Thanksgiving with his parents and three sisters, who live in Tennessee, and returned to Baton Rouge on Sunday.  

Following the slaying, the sheriff's office spoke with his sisters but they told investigators their brother did not give them any indication that anything was wrong.

They also reportedly told authorities their brother was expected to head back to Louisiana on Friday and that they were surprised he stayed through the weekend.

His parents were last seen alive on Friday when they left their home, which they had just sold, to take a watercraft to their new house in Surgoinsville, authorities said.    

Investigators spent much of Monday going through the couple's home after they were told the mother did not show up for work. 

'Both suffered multiple, vicious stab wounds as well as dismemberment,' sheriff's MacLean told WBIR-TV.

He called the crime scene 'gruesome.'

'It would be described as horrific — a very gruesome crime scene,' said MacLean, adding that there was no indication why the remains were scattered. 

Signs indicate the couple struggled, said MacLean, who added that authorities believe Guy stayed in the house after the bodies were dismembered.

The couple's remains were removed from the home by the Regional Forensic Center and two cars belonging to the victims were towed from the scene for examination.

They had just sold their home and were in the process of moving into the home belonging to Guy Sr's deceased mother, which they had recently purchased, The Advocate reported.

Rene Charles, Guy Sr's sister, said her brother and his wife had planned to retire in Surgoinsville, according to the Kingsport Times-News.

Guy Sr had also reportedly been laid off from an engineering job in Knoxville recently. 

'We were going to have Christmases together again,' Charles told the Kingsport Times-News now that her brother and his wife would be closer.

'We were just fixing to have all of us back together again.'

She added that the family is 'very shocked' that her nephew would 'do something like this.'

Guy was apprehended at his Baton Rouge apartment on Tuesday (shown above) when he tried to get into his 2006 Hyundai Sonata

Charles told the newspaper: 'It's one thing to stab someone, but to do everything that he did, to dismember his parents' bodies?'

Authorities with the FBI, the Knox County Sheriff's Office and the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office placed Guy under surveillance during the past few days, MacLean said.

He was apprehended at his Baton Rouge apartment on Tuesday when he tried to get into his 2006 Hyundai Sonata. 

Guy, who does not have a prior criminal history, has declined to talk with authorities and online jail records did not list an attorney for him. 

When asked about a record of Guy attending LSU, a university spokesman told The Advocate that they did not have a record of him being enrolled at the school.

Neighbors have since been rattled by the killings and described the neighborhood as usually very quiet.

'Just horrifying thinking that the quiet neighborhood where everyone waves at each other and willing to help each other, this could happen our street,' one neighbor told WBIR-TV. 

'It's just hard to believe that could happen.' 

Karie Holton, one of Guy's neighbors and an LSU student, said she was 'really shaken up' after learning about the slayings.

She told WALB that she never really spoke to Guy but described him as being 'very quiet' and keeping to himself.

Officials expect to return Guy to Knox County in the next couple of days.
