(TENNESSEE) TBI REPORT: At the request of 8th District Attorney General Jared Effler, TBI special agents are investigating the circumstances leading to the shooting of a man during an interaction with authorities in Campbell County Thursday evening #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.24: TBI agents are working to independently determine the series of events leading to the shooting, including collecting evidence and conducting interviews. Throughout the process, investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration. The TBI acts solely as fact-finders in its cases and does not determine whether the actions of an officer were justified in these types of matters. That decision rests with the District Attorney General requesting TBI’s involvement.

#AceDailyNews reports that TBI Agents Are Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting in Campbell County: Preliminary information indicates that officers with the Caryville Police Department and deputies with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office spotted a car traveling along the Appalachian Highway in Caryville that was the subject of a BOLO (Be On the Lookout) in connection to a robbery that occurred just after 7:00 p.m. in Jacksboro. Officers initiated a traffic stop, but the male driver refused to stop. A pursuit ensued and continued onto Interstate 75.

TBI: Leslie Earhart

At mile marker 137, the driver crashed into several vehicles stopped in a construction zone, including a cruiser driven by a trooper with the Tennessee Highway Patrol who was parked behind a disabled vehicle. During efforts to take the driver into custody, the situation escalated, resulting in the trooper, a Caryville officer, and a Campbell County deputy firing shots, striking him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A female passenger in the car was also injured in the incident and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. No officers were injured during the incident.

The TBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents and instead refers questions of that nature to the respective department to answer as it sees fit.

Seven offenders were found not to be out of compliance and three are still being investigated. James Shermaine Williams was arrested for Failure To Register As A Sex Offender. The other six noncompliant offenders will be further investigated for prosecution under state and federal law.

Four other persons were arrested for felony crimes that were uncovered during the operation. Chad Johnson was arrested for Felon In Possession Of A Firearm and Possession Of A Controlled Substance. Kendall Saintignan was arrested on multiple drug possession charges. David Ramsey was arrested for Felon In Possession Of A Firearm.

The FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, based in Quantico, Virginia, further assisted the local investigative team in answering this question:

‘The investigation found that Anthony Quinn Warner of Antioch, Tennessee, acting alone, built and ultimately detonated the vehicle-borne improvised explosive device. His actions were determined to not be related to terrorism’

Following the explosion, the FBI worked closely with our law enforcement partners on a coordinated and comprehensive investigation. After recovering more than 3,000 pounds of evidence from the blast site, combing through more than 2,500 tips, and conducting more than 250 interviews, the investigative team has reached the following conclusions.

Based on analysis of the information and evidence gathered throughout the investigation, the FBI assesses Warner’s detonation of the improvised explosive device was an intentional act in an effort to end his own life, driven in part by a totality of life stressors – including paranoia, long-held individualized beliefs adopted from several eccentric conspiracy theories, and the loss of stabilizing anchors and deteriorating interpersonal relationships.

The FBI assesses Warner specifically chose the location and timing of the bombing so that it would be impactful, while still minimizing the likelihood of causing undue injury. The FBI’s analysis did not reveal indications of a broader ideological motive to use violence to bring about social or political change, nor does it reveal indications of a specific personal grievance focused on individuals or entities in and around the location of the explosion.

It is important to note that only Warner knows the real reason why he detonated his explosive device. However, at this time, the FBI is confident, based on evidence collected, Warner’s own writings, and interviews with those who knew him best, that the above assessment is accurate.

Special Agent in Charge Douglas Korneski of the FBI Memphis Field Office stated, “The FBI would like to thank the citizens and private sector partners of Nashville, Tennessee, for their support during the response and investigation, especially those who provided tips and volunteered their time and resources. Additionally, the collaborative efforts of all local, state and federal agencies who responded to this incident, and the hundreds of hours dedicated by their men and women, were truly invaluable to this unified effort. They exemplified the tireless dedication we’ve come to expect from those who respond to these types of critical incidents.”

Six MNPD personnel from the Central Precinct, a sergeant and five officers, were on the scene when the RV exploded at 6:30 a.m. on December 25, 2020. The response from the MNPD grew exponentially in the minutes and hours following the blast. Hazardous Devices Unit (HDU) officers, who were en route to 2nd Avenue prior to the explosion, started to lockdown the inner perimeter surrounding the actual blast site. All 10 HDU officers responded to the scene and began coordinating initial sweeps of the downtown area looking for any secondary devices with assistance from explosive detection canine teams from the MNPD & Tennessee Highway Patrol. Additional police personnel were requested to expand the perimeter to the interstate with assistance from the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Tennessee Task Force 2 Urban Search & Rescue personnel from the Metropolitan Police & Fire Departments responded to assist any persons trapped by the explosion (thankfully, no one was found).

  • The THP’s Criminal Investigation Division worked with local, state and federal agencies to help identify a 17-digit number from parts and pieces of the bombed vehicle. That 17-digit number was used to build and identify a vehicle identification number (VIN) with the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).
  • The Tennessee Office of Homeland Security had agents that responded to the command post and coordinated with multiple local, state and federal partners along with the Tennessee Fusion Center during the investigation.
  • 43 Troopers worked 658.5 hours on the Nashville Explosion.

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) TBI REPORT: Agents Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting on Friday Afternoon #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.14: At the request of 20th District Attorney General Glenn Funk, TBI Special Agents are investigating the circumstances in an officer-involved shooting that occurred in Metropolitan Nashville, Friday afternoon:

TBI Agents are Investigating an Officer-Involved-Shooting on Friday Afternoon: ‘Preliminary information indicates that just before 5 p.m., a 911 call was placed from a home in the 2800 block of Greer Road in Goodlettsville’

March 14, 2021

The first of three Metropolitan Nashville police officers arrived at 5:11 p.m. and, according to reports from the scene, encountered a woman armed with various items. The officers’ interactions with the woman, identified as Melissa Wooden (DOB: 3/8/88), escalated for reasons still under investigation, and resulted in an officer first deploying a taser then at least one of the officers firing his service weapon, striking Wooden. She was subsequently hospitalized. No law enforcement officers were injured in the incident.

The investigation remains active and ongoing, as TBI Agents continue to gather any and all relevant evidence, interviews, and information.  Throughout the process, investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration.

The TBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents and instead refers questions of that nature to their respective department to answer as it sees fit.

As a reminder, the TBI acts solely as fact-finders in its cases and does not determine whether the actions of an officer were justified in these types of matters. That decision rests with the District Attorney General requesting TBI’s involvement.

(Nashville, TN.) Operation Volunteer Strong Report: A coordinated effort to identify and locate missing children across Tenn.has led to the recovery of 150 missing children by the United Sates Marshalls, Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (DCS) & Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) #AceNewsDesk report

U.S. MARSHALS, TBI, DCS ANNOUNCE RESULTS OF ‘OPERATION VOLUNTEER STRONG’

EAST TENNESSEE: January 4th – 15th

  • Authorities identified 86 missing children, of which 56 were recovered, five of them in other states.
  • Of the 56 children recovered, authorities located 27 of them in the weeks leading up to the operation, and three after it concluded.
  • Law enforcement identified three of the recovered juveniles as potential human trafficking victims, resulting in a still-active TBI investigation.

“The U.S. Marshals are committed to assisting state and local agencies with locating and recovering endangered missing children to help prevent their falling victim to crimes of violence and exploitation,” said David Jolley, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Tennessee. “We will use every resource at our disposal to help find these missing children.”

MIDDLE TENNESSEE: January 25th – February 5th 

  • Authorities identified 72 missing children, of which 42 were recovered.
  • Of the 42 children recovered, authorities located 29 of them in the weeks leading up to the operation, and 13 during the operation.
  •  Law enforcement identified one child as a potential human trafficking victim, resulting in a still-active TBI investigation.

“We can’t give up. We need the public, the media, and all law enforcement to not give up,” said Denny King, U.S. Marshal for the Middle District of Tennessee. “If you see something, or know something, say something. We cannot give up and stop searching for our most vulnerable and those who cannot help themselves.”

WEST TENNESSEE: February 8th – 12th & February 22nd – 26th 

  • Authorities identified 82 missing children, of which 52 were recovered, three of them in other states.
  • Of the 52 children recovered, authorities located 33 of them in the weeks leading up to the operation, 18 during the operation, and one after it concluded
  • While searching for missing children, authorities located two adults with outstanding warrants.
  • Law enforcement identified one of the recovered juveniles as a human trafficking victim, resulting in a still-active investigation by a Mississippi local law enforcement agency and FBI.
  • Authorities safely recovered a child during an active kidnapping investigation, resulting in the arrest of the suspect.

“I hope this operation changes the course for 150 young lives and leads them to the path of opportunities every child deserves,” said Tyreece Miller, U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Tennessee. “Our efforts should also serve notice to those who prey on society’s most vulnerable that these children are not forgotten. Investigations will continue and the next knock at the door could be for you.”

During the operation, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), based in Alexandria, VA, provided research and analytical support.

“Operation Volunteer Strong is a great example of how working together, we can find missing children and get them the help they need to move forward,” said John Clark, NCMEC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re thrilled to see so many missing children recovered in Tennessee and we thank all the agencies involved for their dedication to child protection.”

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation serves as the clearinghouse for missing children in the state of Tennessee. In this role, the agency provides support to local law enforcement agencies, raises awareness of missing children and prevention efforts, and administers high-profile efforts to locate missing children in dangerous situations through its Endangered Child Alert and AMBER Alert programs.

“Many people don’t realize this, but hundreds of children go missing in our state every month,” said TBI Director David Rausch. “From runaways that may leave their home out of desperation or despair, to those entangled in a custody battle, every single one of them deserves a fighting chance, and that’s why they also deserve our best work to help them.”

Most of the children recovered during the operation will receive services through the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services, which may include placements in foster homes, group homes, or other specialized care.

“We are grateful that missing children have been recovered and are now receiving the services and treatment they need to stay safe and healthy,” said DCS Commissioner Jennifer Nichols. “This operation was truly a collaboration and it’s strengthened relationship with our law enforcement partners. Working together, the agents, marshals, and DCS case managers put in countless hours to track down leads and locate these missing children.”
