First Funeral For Victim In Killing Spree Held Friday
LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. - The first of six victims in a killing spree on the Tennessee-Alabama state line will be laid to rest Friday in Lincoln County.
A funeral will be held at 11 a.m. at Higgins Funeral Home in Fayetteville for 21-year-old Jessica Brown, who was found dead Monday evening at her home on Foxwood Drive. She shared the home with her two-month-old son and his father, 24-year-old Warren Crutcher. The baby was not harmed.
Officials initially declared Crutcher as initially a person of interest in the case, but on Tuesday morning he was also found murdered in Alabama.
Investigators with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office and Madison County, Alabama Sheriff's Office have talked to literally dozens of people who knew the victims.
They have questioned several persons of interest, but no arrests have been made.
Over the past few days, authorities have combed through each of four crime scenes carefully. Evidence found at each scene was sent to the TBI Crime Lab in Nashville for processing.
Officials said they have been making progress, but no one has been formally charged with a crime.
Funeral arrangements have been made for other victims.
Visitation will be held in Huntsville for Amber McCaulley Friday evening from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Royal Funeral Home. The funeral will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church.
A visitation will be held for Warren Crutcher Sunday from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Royal Funeral Home in Huntsville, Alabama. His funeral has been scheduled for Monday at Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Toney, Alabama. It will begin at 1 p.m.
The funeral for Jeffrey Lamar Pope will be held Monday at noon at the Saint Mark Primitive Baptist Church in Huntsville.
Chabreya Cambell, age 22, and her 18-month-old son, Rico Ragland, will be laid to rest Tuesday, October 30 at 11 a.m. at the Saint Bartley Primitive Baptist Church in Huntsville.
Campbell was six months pregnant. Her unborn child was also killed.
Crutcher had former or current relationships with the three women and was believed to have fathered children with at least two of the female victims, but investigators said they did not believe that was the reason the victims were targeted.
