HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Authorities are continuing to investigate the death of a 29-year-old woman in Hendersonville.

On May 18, police responded to a home in the 100 block of Cherry Hills Drive after receiving a call that a woman was unresponsive.

The woman, identified as Ashley Mason, was transported to an area hospital where it was determined she suffered from a subdural hematoma, or blood vessels rupturing inside her brain.

On May 19, police began investigating Mason’s case after she underwent surgery in an attempt to eliminate pressure from her brain.

Multiple witnesses were interviewed and potential evidence submitted to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Mason was declared brain dead and died two days later on May 21.

An autopsy revealed her cause of death was due to the subdural hematoma. However, the manner of her death is still pending.

Authorities said there were no obvious signs of what may have caused the bleeding on her brain.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Hendersonville Crime Stoppers at 615-573-5400.
