Kellum Williams

ADAMS, Tenn. (WKRN) – Four people are in custody and a fifth added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top 10 “Most Wanted” following the murder of a Clarksville woman whose charred remains were found in a field in Robertson County last month.

Amy Murphy’s remains were found on Feb. 1 off Highway 76 and Port Royal Road near Adams, Tennessee, after a long-time resident reported seeing flames.

Elizabeth Stuard told News 2 she called 911 after making the gruesome discovery.

“I’m still in shock about all of this,” said Stuard. “I’m glad they’re coming to a closure and finally catching the guys who did it. I feel really bad for the family.”

On Monday, a grand jury indicted five people for the crime.

Kellum Williams, 34, Kevin Forman, 26, and Carol Williams, 38, are each charged with first degree murder and abuse of a corpse.

Lee Poe, 27, is charged with accessory to first degree murder and abuse of a corpse.

Sandra Murphy, 19, is charged with accessory to first degree murder.

Kellum Williams, of Montgomery County, is the only one who remains at large.

He has brown eyes and black hair. He is 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 230 pounds.

He has scars on his left arm, left forearm, head, upper lip and eye and tattoos on both arms and his right forearm.

He was last seen driving a light blue 2000 Cadillac Deville with Tennessee license plate No. S4652R.

Williams uses the aliases of Earle Kellum Thomas, KJ Williams, Jason Taylor and Kellum Tyrone Williams and goes by a nickname of “New York.”

He is believed to be a prospect member of the Wheels of Soul motorcycle gang in Clarksville and should be considered armed and dangerous.

“It scares me knowing there’s still one out there. I hope they find him,” said Stuard.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND or 1-800-824-3463.

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