Murfreesboro Police investigating early morning fatal shooting

A man is dead and a suspect is on the loose after a shooting early yesterday morning in Murfreesboro. Officers were dispatched to the 2400 block of Halls Hill Pike  on a shots fired call and to help disperse a large crowd. The victim’s identity has not yet been released. Several possible witnesses have been interviewed, but no suspect information is available at this time. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective James Abbott at 629-201-5523 or Crime Stoppers at 615-893-7867.


Ankle monitors of 20 Davidson Co. offenders turned off due to payment issue

A total of 20 Davidson County criminal offenders and suspects, including a murder suspect, were not monitored for hours on Friday because they had their ankle monitors turned off due to payment issues. Andy Baggenstoss is the president of Tennessee Recovery and Monitoring, the third-party company contracted to monitor the devices. Baggenstoss said each offender owed the company more than $600 and says they, “cannot continue to subsidize the costs for the county” and had to stop monitoring.

He claims the problem could have been resolved because of a push from the state to fully fund the indigency fund. State lawmakers unanimously passed the measure last session. Under the new law, Davidson County and the state would each pay for monitoring services for people too poor to afford it on their own. However, according to Baggenstoss, the county’s time frame to opt in was too short (75 days). The General Sessions Court opted in, but criminal court did not.
