BRADYVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man and woman are dead and another woman was left hospitalized after an incident in Cannon County Saturday night.
Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and forensic scientists are investigating at a home on Choctaw Drive in Bradyville, Tennessee.
While details remain sparse at this time, the TBI confirmed David Wooten, 42, was found dead of a gunshot wound, while Elizabeth “Lizzie” Clement, 19, and Laura Jastre, 28, suffered serious injuries.
Both women were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville where officials say Clement died Sunday night.
It’s unclear at this time how the women were hurt, but TBI spokesman Josh DeVine told News 2 it does not appear the women were shot but instead injured with another type of weapon.
Jastre’s mother told News 2 her daughter’s injuries are “life-threatening” and she has undergone three surgeries. Jastre is expected to have several more surgeries in the future.
Clement’s mother, Jenny Clement, is pleading with the public, hoping someone with information on the case will come forward.
“I want closure. I want to know what happened to my child,” she told News 2. “Why was she taken from me at 19 years old? Why is she not standing here with me now?”
The teen’s mother is leaning on family and her faith for support. She’s also seeking justice.
“I want the person that did it to pay for it. They do not deserve to walk around like nothing happened. They deserve to pay for it.”
Clement’s family says she was an organ donor. They’re hopeful that in their loss, other lives may be saved.
Destinee Dunn, a childhood friend of Clement’s, said, “You know, I just keep asking God, ‘Why? Why her? Why now? Why so young?’”
And News 2 also spoke to a friend of Wooten’s, who said he just wants answers as to what happened.
“I’d just like to know who done it and why they done it,” Jerry Corley said, adding, “He definitely didn’t deserve what he got. You know, if they’ll do it to him, they’ll do it to anybody.”
The TBI has not yet released what the trio’s relationship is, and friends told News 2 they are unsure of the connection.
No arrests have been made, and a motive has not been released.
Further details remain unknown. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
