Killed – Anderous Reid (Nashville, TN)

Anderous Reid

The couple involved in a fatal shooting Saturday at a Bellevue apartment complex had a lengthy history of violence.

Jessica Cothon, 29, shot the father of her two children after she says he physically attacked her about 4 a.m. at the Hallmark of Bellevue Apartments on River Road.

Anderous Reid, 39, died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Cothon hasn’t been charged in connection with Reid’s death, and Metro police say this is one of those cases where a grand jury will likely decide whether to prosecute.

Anderous Reid, 39, was shot at approximately 3:30 a.m. by Jessica Cothon, 29.

West Precinct detectives are continuing to investigate a West Nashville woman’s report that she fatally wounded her boyfriend in self-defense during an overnight domestic-related fight inside their River Road apartment.

Anderous Reid, 39, was shot at approximately 3:30 a.m. by Jessica Cothon, 29. Also home at the time were the couple’s two children (three-year-old girl and six-year-old boy), Cothon’s 11-year-old daughter, and Cothon’s mother. Police department counselors responded to assist the children.

Cothon was fully cooperative with detectives and said that Reid was physically attacking her in a bedroom when she retrieved her pistol and fired. Reid was hit in the midsection and died at the scene. No charges are being placed against Cothon at present. The case file, as a matter of routine, will be sent to the District Attorney’s Office for review at the conclusion of the investigation.

Killed – Tyler Gurien (Memphis, TN)

male

(WMC-TV) – Investigators arrested three suspects in a Thursday afternoon murder in the Coro Lake area, according to court records.

Mark Whitely, 24 , was booked Friday. He admitted he helped plan and execute a robbery at a house in which Tyler Gurien was shot and killed by another co-defendant.

Jonathan Bolden, 28, was arrested first, and Ryan Winston, 21, was also arrested.

All three suspects are charged with first-degree murder in perpetration of a robbery.

Police say Bolden, Whitely, and one other people went to Gurien’s house intending to rob him. While there, one of the individuals pulled out a shotgun and shot Gurien. Police say Bolden admitted his participation in the plan to rob Gurien.

Bolden is scheduled to be in court Monday morning.

Memphis police were called to the house Thursday afternoon after neighbors reportedly found a man’s body in a blood-covered basement.

According to police, this latest trouble began about 2 p.m. on Dec. 26 in the 4800 block of East Shore. Responding officers found Gurien in a puddle of blood in the basement of that house. He was pronounced dead on the scene. Investigators determined that Whitely, Winston and Bolden were responsible for robbing Gurien, then killing him with a shotgun, police said. All three remain jailed.

Killed – Robert Lane (Kingsport, TN)

male

BLOUNTVILLE — Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson said Monday that his department’s investigation into a weekend shooting death continues, and whatever it uncovers will be sent to the Sullivan County grand jury.

Anderson said so far the investigation indicates the dead man, Robert “Bobby” Lane, 55, 125 Rocky Lane, asked his brother Richard Lane, 57, to meet him at their childhood homeplace at 117 Rocky Lane and to be there no later than 6 p.m. on Saturday. Rocky Lane is in the Bloomingdale community.

Anderson said the two men had been involved in an argument over property, either the homeplace or adjoining land, and Bobby Lane told Richard Lane he would have the sheriff’s office there for their meeting.

Anderson said when Richard Lane arrived at the unoccupied home, which is under renovation, no one was present other than Bobby Lane.

Neighbors were home, though, Anderson said — and it was neighbors who first called police to report a shooting at 5:55 p.m.

But Richard Lane also called 911 to report the shooting at 6:01 p.m., Anderson said.

Shortly after Richard Lane exited his vehicle, Bobby Lane hit him in the head with a piece of granite or marble — and Richard Lane then drew a .45-caliber pistol and shot Bobby Lane, who died at the scene, Anderson said.

“Within a couple of minutes he hit him in the head and knocked him to the ground,” Anderson said. “And when he knocked him to the ground, Richard pulled out a weapon, a .45 semi-automatic, and fired several rounds and struck Bobby Lane. That’s basically what happened.”

More information is being released on a fatal shooting that happened over the weekend.

Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson tells News 5 Robert “Bobby” Lane of Kingsport died at the scene from gunshot wounds.

The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office tells us the fight happened Saturday at a home on Rocky Lane in Kingsport.

When deputies arrived they found Robert Lane’s body lying in the front yard of the house. Investigators say his brother, Richard Lane, is the man who shot him.

Sheriff Anderson tells us the two brothers were arguing outside of the home, then it got violent. “Bobby had a piece of marble or granite, and as soon as Richard stepped out [of his vehicle], he hit him and knocked him to the ground. Then Richard pulled out a weapon, a .45 semi-automatic [pistol]. He fired several [rounds] and struck Bobby Lane,” said Sheriff Wayne Anderson.

The victim’s brother has not been charged in the shooting.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Boy – Jaden Thacker (Grainger County, TN)

male

The case of a woman and her grandson found shot to death in a Rutledge yard Saturday has been ruled a murder-suicide, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

According to a TBI news release, the victims have been identified as Deidre Thacker of Sharps Chapel and her 10-year-old grandson, Jaden Thacker. Both bodies were taken for autopsy to the East Tennessee Regional Forensic Center in Knoxville.

A neighbor found the bodies shortly before 6:15 a.m. in the yard of an abandoned home at 8926 Lakeshore Drive in Rutledge, Grainger County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Charles Biddle said.

Officials said a 1995 green Taurus was found in the driveway of the abandoned home.

Authorities said evidence discovered in the vehicle as well as evidence at the scene indicated a murder-suicide. The two had no known association with the address where their bodies were found, officials said.

“It appears it happened earlier in the morning,” Biddle said. “We’ll be able to determine more about the time of death after an autopsy.”

Deputies found a .38-caliber pistol at the scene.

A woman, who lived next door to the abandoned house, found the two bodies on the 8800 block in Rutledge shortly before 8 a.m. and called police.

(WBIR) Officials said they believe a grandmother shot her 10-year-old grandson before killing herself near an abandoned house in Grainger County Saturday morning, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations.

Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Memphis, TN)

female

The Memphis Police Department released new details Thursday in what appears to be a murder-suicide that left two dead and one critically injured in a Binghamton apartment complex the day before.

After a day of silence from the department about the circumstances of the bloody encounter, the murder-suicide investigation appears to confirm the speculations of neighbors and onlookers who watched as police secured the crime scene after the shootings.

When officers reached the scene at 1:30 Wednesday afternoon, a 51-year-old woman was already lying on the walkway outside the second-floor apartment suffering from a gunshot wound.

Inside they found a 24-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man shot dead. A 6-month-old baby, who appeared to be unharmed, was lying next to the dead man. The infant was taken to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital as a precaution.

There were also two other children inside the apartment, ages 4 and 3. Both here unharmed, police said, and they have since been released into the care of a family member.

The injured woman remained in critical condition at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis late Thursday.

Police have not released the names of any of the victims, and did not specify which of the adults they suspect did the shooting.

When police learned of the shooting, it was reported that two women had been shot. Since then, the suspect also was shot.

The shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot.

Killed – Man (Memphis, TN)

The man accused of being the partner in crime for a murder suspect will face a judge today.

Police say Christopher Woodland drove the getaway car after Charles Griffin shot and killed a pawn shop owner.

The shooting happened last week at Lamar Jewelry and Pawn in Memphis.

Surveillance video shows a man shattering a glass case, stuffing stolen jewelry into two red duffel bags and then getting away in a red car.

Griffin is expected in court sometime next week.

Memphis Police detectives are investigating an apparent homicide after a Lamar Jewelry and Pawn customer found a man deceased inside the Memphis business Wednesday morning.

“A customer tried to go through the store,” said Memphis Police Maj. Dennis McNeil. “No answer to the door. Looked inside, see a person down, contact police.”

A man was shot dead inside an Orange Mound pawnshop Wednesday morning, according to the Memphis Police Department.

Officers found the man inside Cash America Pawn at 2399 Lamar at 11:45 a.m.

December 17, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The man fatally shot late Tuesday morning inside an apartment in the Edgehill public housing community is identified as Isaac Morris, 28.

Killed – Norman Gallman (Chattanooga, TN)

Norman Gallman

Police are saying this much about Tuesday’s apparent road rage shooting at the intersection of Moore Road and North Terrace: 39-year-old Norman Gallman was killed, and 62-year-old Richard Manning is charged with criminal homicide and aggravated assault.

And if investigators ultimately determine road rage was the cause of the conflict, it may stand as the first road rage-related death in Chattanooga’s history.

“I don’t remember us having one here [prior],” said Sgt. Wayne Jefferson, Chattanooga Police Department spokesman.

Around 9 a.m. Tuesday, police were dispatched to 344 S. Moore Road on a “person shot” call. They found Gallman, an Ooltewah resident, in a silver Honda CR-V suffering from a gunshot wound. There was a female passenger in the vehicle, whose name has not been released. She was not injured.

According to a Chattanooga police news release, eyewitnesses described a confrontation between Gallman and another person on the road that resulted in a gunshot.

Jefferson said Gallman and Manning appear to have ended up beside each other at the Moore and North Terrace intersection when the two got into a dispute.

He said it appears Gallman left his vehicle, approached Manning and was struck by a single gunshot. He then walked back to his SUV and was found there by emergency responders.

Gallman was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead from the gunshot wound. Manning, who had left the scene, later was arrested at his 706 S. Lovell Ave. home after police tracked a car matching a description given by witnesses to that location. Jefferson said there was no one else at the house when police arrived.

Richard Manning, the 62-year-old man accused of killing Norman Gallman in the midst of a road rage dispute Tuesday, is a former Hamilton County sheriff’s officer, an instructor of armed guards at a Chattanooga shooting range and a cancer patient.

Columbia police are investigating the Sunday morning death of a 19-year-old man they believe was the victim of a “tragic shooting accident,” Sgt. Vince Morgan said.

James Tyler Wisdom of Columbia died inside his town home at 2228 Union Place Court from a single gunshot wound to his head, according to a police report.

Morgan said Wisdom’s roommate was upstairs showing a .45-caliber Sauer pistol to another person about 1 a.m. Sunday when it discharged. The bullet passed through the floor striking Wisdom, who was standing in the kitchen area below.

Police responding to a 911 call found the two men who had been upstairs outside the home. They were extremely distraught, he said.

While running his information, officers found a grand jury indicted him with reckless homicide for the death of James Tyler Wisdom, 19, of 3367 Neeley Hollow Road, Columbia, according to Capt. Kenny Brady. He remains at the Franklin County jail, pending his extradition.

Frederick and Wisdom were at Frederick’s Union Place Court apartment around 1 a.m. on December 15. Frederick was upstairs showing a roommate, Adam Mark Eli of Columbia, his .45-caliber Sauer pistol. The weapon discharged while Frederick was handling it, sending the bullet through the floor and striking Wisdom in the head as he stood in the downstairs kitchen area, according to the report. He died at the scene.

Frederick and Eli left the weapon in the apartment and waited outside for police, according to preliminary police reports. The two were “hysterical” as they told officers what happened, according to the report.

Killed – Jackie Graham Warpoole Jr. (Smyrna, TN)

Jackie Graham Warpoole Jr.

MURFREESBORO – A Smyrna man was found dead from a gunshot wound Sunday morning in a car on Interstate 24 westbound near the Almaville Road exit, officials with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said.

Sheriff’s detectives are investigating the suspicious death of Jackie Graham Warpoole Jr., 47, of Smyrna. Warpoole was found shot inside a silver Dodge Magnum about 6:30 a.m. Sunday by a motorist who stopped to check on the parked car, Sheriff Robert Arnold said.

MURFREESBORO — Rutherford County deputies arrested a man suspected of shooting and killing a man on I-24 near the Almaville Road exit in Smyrna this past December.

Arnold said Edgar Domonique Covington, 23, of Nashville was charged with fatally shooting Warpoole, 47, of Smyrna Dec. 15 on I-24 near the Almaville Road exit in Smyrna.

The early morning of Dec. 15 progressed like this, Canady said: The couple left a party during the early hours of the day. As Canady directed her vehicle from state Route 840 onto I-24, another vehicle pulled behind her and began flashing its lights.

When Canady drove onto I-24, the vehicle pulled alongside her car, she said. The driver, Warpoole, motioned for Canady to pull over.

When Canady sped up to 80 mph, Warpoole kept pace, rolled his window down, screamed at the couple and gave them an offensive gesture.

Covington reached under his seat and grabbed a pistol and began loading it with bullets, Canady said. When she asked what he was doing, he told her to just drive.

Canady’s boyfriend rolled his window down and shot at Warpoole three times, she said. Two bullets missed. One of them passed through Warpoole’s skull.

Warpoole slowed down, Canady said. She increased the speed of her vehicle to 100 mph.

When investigators arrived on the scene, they determined that Warpoole had turned on his caution lights and pulled his vehicle to the shoulder of the interstate near the Almaville Road exit, Humphress said. Warpoole’s foot was still pressed firmly against the brake. He was dead when deputies arrived.

It turns out that road rage may have led to the alleged shooting death of Smyrna resident Jackie Warpoole in the early-morning hours of Dec. 15, 2013. For six months, all sorts of conjecture surfaced.

Warpoole, who was found dead in his Dodge Magnum on the Sam Ridley Parkway exit ramp off I-24, engaged in a highway battle with Dawn Canady and her boyfriend “Dom” Covington from state Route 840 in Murfreesboro all the way to Smyrna, Canady testified. She said Warpoole tailgated them, swerving and flashing his lights at them on the 840 ramp before chasing them up I-24, signaling for them to pull over.

He didn’t know Covington was loading his gun, and when Warpoole flicked a cigarette at them and flipped them a bird, Covington fired three shots at him, according to Canady’s testimony. She said she didn’t know one of them hit him in the head.

Killed – Jack Hutchins, Jr. (Knoxville, TN)

Jack Hutchins, Jr.

Police say when they arrived, they found 52-year-old Jack Hutchins, Jr. had been shot more than once. According to police, Hutchins was shot as he was getting out of his pickup truck. The report says he had just come home after picking up dinner for his family.

Hutchins was taken to UT Medical Center, but was pronounced dead

A Knoxville father of eight died because a group of teenagers were strapped for cash, newly-released records show.

And, the youngest of the quartet charged in the slaying of Jack Hutchins Jr., 52, is labeled by prosecutors as the suspect who felled him — firing at Hutchins even after the Parkridge man lay dying on the ground.

The News Sentinel on Friday obtained through a public records request petitions filed in Knox County Juvenile Court in the Nov. 30 slaying of Hutchins.

A respected handyman and father, Hutchins was shot to death in the front yard of his Woodbine Avenue home. An autopsy shows he was shot seven times and had defensive wounds on his hands.

Four teenagers have been charged. Alleged Crips gang member Nolandus Sims, 19, and Antonio Deonte Marlin, 18, face charges in Knox County Criminal Court of felony murder and attempted especially aggravated robbery in Hutchins’ death and especially aggravated kidnapping and carjacking for allegedly taking Larry Mathis’ vehicle at gunpoint shortly after the slaying.

Andre Terry, now 16, and Quantavious Williams, now 18, are charged with felony murder and attempted especially aggravated robbery. Terry, who also faces a gun charge, was 15 at the time of the slaying. Williams was 17.

Fitzgerald alleges Sims and Terry got out of the vehicle, each armed with .380-caliber handguns, while the remaining suspects stayed in the vehicle. When Hutchins saw the gunmen, he turned toward his truck, she wrote.

“When Hutchins made a movement back toward the inside of the truck, Terry shot Jack Hutchins numerous times, (including) after Hutchins was already on the ground,” Fitzgerald wrote.

The autopsy shows Hutchins was shot once in the chest, three times in the back and once each in the hip, arm and knee.

Killed – Patricia M. Cothran (Culleoka, TN)

female

A Maury County woman was shot and killed Thursday evening after a dispute with her husband at their Culleoka home, a Maury County official told the Columbia Daily Herald.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to the home on Moore Lane after 8 p.m., where they found 59-year-old Patricia M. Cothran still breathing but unresponsive, the Daily Herald reported. She stopped breathing while emergency workers attempted to render aid.

The woman’s husband, James L. Cothran, 70, reportedly told investigators he shot his wife after she threatened him with a large kitchen knife following an argument over the shoes he was wearing in the living room.

The man was released after speaking with investigators, and no charges have been filed, based on his claim of self-defense.

Killed – Harold Whiting (Memphis, TN)

male

(WMC-TV) – Memphis police found a man dead in the street in South Memphis Wednesday night, according to officials.

A call came into police regarding a man who appeared to be injured and leaning on the side of his vehicle at Pond Street and Lucy Avenue. Once officers arrived on the scene, the victim was found dead.

Police are working the case as a murder. They say 32-year-old Harold Whiting was fatally shot and fell out of his car.

“I live right next to the field here. It happened right at the end of the field,” said South Memphis resident Ester Tucker.

Tucker lives next door to where the man stumbled out of his car, bleeding.

“He got shot as far as I know. I don’t know if someone was trying to rob him. It was a sad scene,” said Tucker.

Police say a Fiat 500 ran off the road into a vacant lot Wednesday night.

“I’m in the bed. I hear gunshots right here in the alley. So it’ll wake you up,” said resident Horace Alexander. “I’ve been here about three years. I haven’t had too many problems, but I hear a lot of gunshots in the neighborhood.”

For all the gunshots Alexander has heard over the years, he says Wednesday night was all quiet.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Amy Lange (Millington, TN)

Amy Lange

Millington, TN) Two people were found dead in a Millington home Monday.

Police believe Mark Perry shot and killed his estranged wife Amy Lange then shot and killed himself.

Lange was the 2012-2013 teacher of the year in Shelby County.

Amy Lange was a teacher at Millington Central High School.

The bodies were found in a home in the 3000 block Oakhurst.

Perry’s father says he climbed through a doggy door to get inside the home and discovered the bodies.

Three months ago, Millington police arrested Mark Perry after he allegedly threatened to kill Amy Lange, his wife of more than three years.

Just two weeks after that, Lange sought an order of protection that would have barred Perry from any contact with her for one year. She failed to show for a later hearing on the matter and the petition was ultimately dismissed.

But sometime late Sunday or early Monday, Perry — armed with a pistol — went back to the home at 3829 Oakhurst in the Lucy area of Millington. He shot and killed Lange, police said, then turned the pistol on himself. Relatives found the bodies late Monday morning.

Lange, an art teacher at Millington Central High, was 44. Perry, until recently a repair technician at Cordova Heating and Air, was 43.

Killed – Jerald Wayne Mills (Nashville, TN)

Jerald Wayne Mills1

NASHVILLE,TN (WBRC) – Nashville Police are reporting that 44 year old Jerald Wayne Mills, a
Nashville songwriter and performer originally from Arab Alabama was shot early this morning
at a Nashville bar.

Nashville Police were called out to the Pit and Barrel bar at 515 2nd Avenue around 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Witnesses inside the bar say Mills and the bar owner 44 year old Chris Ferrell got into an altercation over Mills smoking in a non smoking area of the bar.

In the early hours of November 23, 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee, Mills was shot in the head by a bar owner allegedly over an argument involving Mills lighting up a cigarette in a no-smoking area.[6] He was rushed to a hospital but later died.[7][8] On March 6, 2015, Chris Ferrell was found guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Wayne Mills.

A country music singer was shot dead inside a Tennessee bar after the owner spotted the man lighting a cigarette in a non-smoking section over the weekend, authorities said.

The deadly spat unfolded after Jerald (Wayne) Mills, 44, of the Wayne Mills Band, allegedly lit up inside the Pit and Barrel bar in downtown Nashville about 5 a.m. Saturday, after the club closed, WKRN-TV reported.

The bar’s owner, Chris Ferrel, 44, started to argue with the crooner — who was a popular performer on the college circuit — as a small group of patrons began to leave the club.

Killed – Moises Cedeno (Nashville, TN)

Moises Cedeno1

November 23, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

West Precinct detectives will be charging 19-year-old Matthew McDowell with criminal homicide for Friday afternoon’s fatal shooting of Moises Cedeno, 32, outside Lee’s Market at 310 17th Avenue North during an apparent robbery attempt.

Witnesses reported that the gunman fled in a purple PT Cruiser. An officer leaving the scene of the shooting later spotted the suspect vehicle at 16th Avenue North and Charlotte Avenue. Further investigation led detectives to McDowell’s 32nd Avenue North residence where he was taken into custody Friday night. A revolver was located in the pocket of a hooded jacket recovered from McDowell’s residence. During an interview, McDowell implicated himself in the shooting.

At the time of his arrest, McDowell was free on $15,000 bond for his November 11th arrest for marijuana possession and evading arrest. His photo is being withheld pending lineups.

Moises Cedeno was shot to death in a robbery attempt outside a grocery store in Clarksville, Tenn., on Friday. Cedeno recently moved to Clarksville from New York with hopes of becoming a certified electrician. “He always thought about his family’s well-being, and when I say that he’s the most unselfish person—it’s true,” said Juan Jimenez, a childhood friend. Cedeno leaves behind a wife and four sons ages under the age of 12. A & S Electric, where he worked, has set up a trust fund for his family. The accused shooter, 19-year old Matthew McDowell, is behind bars.

Metro police are investigating a deadly shooting Friday afternoon outside a Nashville market.

The shooting was reported about 12:30 p.m. near the Lee’s Market in the 300 block of 17th Avenue North, west of downtown, between Charlotte Avenue and Church Street.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Dead – Robert Land (Spring Hill, TN)

Robert Land

A man died and his wife was hospitalized after gunfire rattled their quiet neighborhood in Spring Hill.

Police identified the two people shot as Robert and Sue Land, a beloved couple in their 60s.

Apparently married for decades, it remains a mystery how it all ended this way Wednesday morning along Freemantle Circle in the Cherry Grove community.

“They were great people. They were very easygoing,” said neighbor Chris Stammen.

Stammen lives next door to the Lands and said he cannot believe what happened inside their home.

“(I’m) just shocked. I figured somebody broke in. And you know, because they said, they had said there was gunshots, and I thought somebody broke in,” Stammen said. “It just makes no sense. Like I said, these are the most loving people I’ve ever met.”

Sue Land called 911 just after 4:15 a.m., with multiple gunshot wounds.

But when police arrived, they also found her husband shot dead in their master bedroom.

More details emerged Tuesday about the shootings of Robert J. Land, 63, and his wife, Sue C. Land, 60, although police are still not ready to discuss the nature of the incident pending further investigation.

Robert Land was found dead, and his wife, critically injured, suffering multiple gunshot wounds when police responded to an early morning 911 call on Nov. 13 made from the Land’s home in the upscale Cherry Grove 2 subdivision.

Spring Hill Police Lt. Justin Whitwell said a handgun was found in the area of Robert Land’s body, one of “multiple” firearms found in the home. He said all the weapons were being sent to Nashville for ballistics tests, and police will await those results before identifying which, if any, was used in the shootings.

SPRING HILL, Tenn. – Spring Hill Police have determined that a shooting that left a man dead and his wife seriously injured late last year was an attempted murder-suicide.

Police said Robert Land shot his wife, Sue, multiple times on the morning of November 13, 2013, at their home on Fremantle Drive.

Land then shot and killed himself, according to police.

Police Investigate Monday Night and Tuesday Morning Shootings, Resulting in Two Separate Homicides

At 11:40 p.m. Monday, police responded to a shooting at East Pointe Apartments, located at 504 Daugherty Street. Alexander Merriweather, 23, of Jackson, was found dead from multiple gunshots. Merriweather was sitting in the living room when shots were fired from outside and into a window. Merriweather did not live at this apartment.

At 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to shots fired on Holland Avenue. A house on the 80 block of Holland had been struck. Shell casings were recovered outside and bullets were discovered inside the home. The home was occupied, but there were no injuries.

At 6:20 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a shooting in Lincoln Courts. Deandre Thomas, 26, was found shot on the back porch of an apartment in the 100 building. Thomas lived at this apartment. Thomas was transported by ambulance to a local hospital and was pronounced dead.

After the shooting, a caller told dispatchers that approximately four armed juveniles boarded a school bus. Police stopped the bus on Lincoln Street and Lincoln Circle. Officers searched all students for weapons, but none were found. The bus was released and continued on its route.

Investigators are attempting to determine what, if any, connection exists between these shootings and Monday afternoon’s shooting at Royal Arms Apartments, 1580 N. Royal.

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Jesse Meece (Nashville, TN)

Jesse Meece1

Gruesome details are emerging about what is now confirmed as a murder-suicide at a house in South Nashville.

Investigators say a man took his own life, but they believe he first killed his girlfriend then attempted to hide her body at the home in the 900 block of Ilawood Drive.

Police said 45-year-old Jesse Meece was found dead at the home Monday afternoon as officers made a welfare check after his employer said he had not been to work since Oct. 30.

Meece apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot, police said.

Police had actually responded to the same home on Oct. 29 after Meece’s girlfriend, 45-year-old Beth Straub, had not reported to work for several days prior.

Officers then spoke with Meece, who said Straub had left the home after an argument, and officers did not find anything suspicious as they checked the home with Meece’s permission.

When police returned to the home Monday to find Meece’s body, they also saw evidence of construction in the basement, including what they described as a makeshift wall that appeared to have been recently installed.

Behind the wall, police found a 96-gallon trash can with a woman’s body inside. The woman’s identity has not been confirmed by the medical examiner, but police said they presume it to be that of Straub.

The trash can was connected by a PVC pipe running to the house’s sewer system, and the trash can’s lid had been sealed with plexiglass and foam sealant.

Police said it appears the woman had been dead for several days. As part of the investigation, they found a receipt dated Oct. 27 for the sealant and 100 pounds of livestock stall deodorizer in the home.

Police believe Straub was killed sometime between October 27 and October 29. Meece then modified the trash can to ensure the smell of a decomposing body would not be detected.

SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT) – Police in Tennessee are now saying that 45 year old Beth Straub was beaten to death before she was stuffed and sealed in a 96-gallon trash can fitted with PVC Pipes and filled with livestock deodorizer to hide the apparent odor of a dead body.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
South Precinct detectives are investigating a bizarre case of murder-suicide in which the victims, girlfriend and boyfriend, apparently died days apart inside a home at 928 Ilawood Drive in South Nashville.

At 3 p.m. Monday, officers responded to the home to conduct a welfare check at the request of Jesse Meece’s mother after she learned from his employer that he had not been to work since October 30th. All access points to the residence were locked. The landlord was contacted and he responded to the scene with a door key. Using the key, officers entered and found Meece, 45, dead on the couch from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.

During the investigation of Meece’s suicide, officers recalled to detectives that they had responded to the home on October 29th to conduct a welfare check on Meece’s girlfriend, Beth Straub, 45. Straub’s employer called police on the 29th after she failed to report for work on both the 28th and 29th. Straub last worked on October 23rd. She was scheduled for a partial shift on the 24th and to take a vacation day on Friday the 25th. Officers responding to that welfare check call spoke with Meece at the home on the evening of the 29th. Meece told them that Straub left and had not returned following an argument during the prior weekend. He allowed officers to check the inside of the residence. They found no sign of Straub.

During the investigation at the home last night, officers and crime scene experts saw evidence of construction in the basement, including a makeshift wall which appeared to have been recently installed. Removal of the wall revealed a 96-gallon wheeled trash can that was resting on pieces of wood supported by sawhorses. Attached to the trash can was a PVC pipe that had been run into the home’s sewer line. When the lid of the trash can was raised, officers saw a Plexiglas window surrounded by a foam sealant. A receipt dated October 27th for the sealant and 100 pounds of livestock stall deodorizer was found in the home. The victim is thought to have been dead since at least October 27th.

The trash can was taken intact to the Medical Examiner’s Office where it was unsealed this morning. Inside was a woman’s body presumed to be Straub’s (positive identification and the cause of death are pending), along with some of the deodorizer.

The police department’s Domestic Violence Division has no record of any trouble between Meece and Straub. Neither has an arrest history in Nashville.
