New information release on bodies found burned in cars in Cheatham County


CHEATHAM COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two separate cases of bodies found in burned-out cars in Cheatham County have the community on edge.

On Sunday, the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office took to Facebook to squash rumors of a third body being found. They also shared some new information in the case.


FB friends, there are messages going around on social media and questions that a third vehicle with a body inside was discovered. This is just rumor and not true. We want to calm the fears of all Cheatham residents and assure the two recent homicides are actively being investigated by TBI and the Cheatham Sheriff’s Office. There is evidence that both victims were from the Nashville area and were brought to Cheatham to be disposed of.

We will solve these two with the assistance of Metro Police and other agencies. If you have any information you would like to share, you will remain confidential.

This was the first time someone has publicly stated that the bodies both came from the Nashville area.

The first body was found Sept. 7 off of Wiley Pardue Road in Ashland City. The second discovered Sept. 23 near River Road near Pond Creek Road
