Funeral Arrangements Set For Bellevue Murder Victims
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Funeral arrangements have been made for the victims of a triple stabbing in Bellevue.
Visitation for 71- year-old Marylea Jordan, 48-year-old Michelle Pinkowski, and 14-year-old Jonathan Culpepper will be Sunday from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Williamson Memorial in Franklin.
A joint funeral is planned for Monday at 11 a.m. at Williamson Memorial.
Police said their neighbor, 41-year-old Craig Garber, stabbed the grandmother, mother, and son to death inside their Beech Bend Drive home last Sunday. The only person to survive the attack was Pinkowski's 9-year-old daughter. She was able to escape to a neighbor's home and call for help.
Garber remained hospitalized in a secure ward at General Hospital. Police said he suffered self-inflicted stab wounds after the attack on Sunday. Police said Garber will be jailed when his medical condition allows.
No motive has been released.
The 9-year-old survivor is being cared for by her aunt and uncle.
Harpeth Valley Elementary School started accepting donations for the little girl and other family members at the Bellevue Pinnacle Bank on Highway 70. Donations can be made to the Harpeth Valley PTO Burial & Benevolence Fund.
Also, supporters can donate to the Mike and Cynthia Jordan Fund at any Bank of America Branch. All donations will help cover funeral or other expenses.
A candlelight vigil for the victims is set for Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Red Caboose Park in Bellevue.
