The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested another man wanted in the beating death of a Cowan man in March.

Coty Holmes, 25, was wanted by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office and TBI for one count of first degree murder and one count of felony murder in the beating death of Corey Matthews.

Matthews, 26, was discovered dead in a field in Cowan, Tennessee on March 24. Authorities said he suffered blunt trauma to his head and face.

Investigators have since said they believe Matthews was targeted because of his affiliation with the Aryan Brotherhood and Aryan Nation.

Police previously arrested Todd Dalton, 39, and John Lanier, 26, for their involvement in Matthews' death.

Holmes and another suspect who remains at large were added to the TBI's “Most Wanted” list on April 10.

The last suspect still wanted by authorities is David Jenkins, 46, of Manchester. He is also wanted for one count of first degree murder and one count of felony murder.

Jenkins is described as a white male with brown hair and brown eyes. He is five feet, ten inches tall and weighs approximately 185 pounds. He has numerous tattoos on his arms, left shoulder, chest, back and thighs, as well as numerous scars.

Jenkins criminal history dates back to 1985 and includes assault, drug trafficking and robbery along with many other charges.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of David Jenkins is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
