New Details Uncovered In Doctor's Murder

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. - She was shot and killed inside her own home, and police said it was at the hands of her husband, but many still want to know what went wrong in a seemingly picture perfect marriage between a popular orthodontist and her husband.

While the makeshift memorial continued to grow at Dr. Rachael Maidens' Orthodontics Office, doors to her establishment remain closed.

Brentwood Police have released few details in the murder of Maidens and why they believe her husband Randolph is to blame, but some are sharing what they call bizarre encounters with the husband and father.

Witnesses at Bricks Cafe said Maidens stumbled into the restaurant back in January visibly drunk and reportedly made customers and staff uncomfortable. They called Metro Police after a shot gun shell fell out of his pocket and upon further investigation, said a gun was found in the back seat of his car.

Witnesses said Maidens repeatedly asked that no one call his wife because she'd be mad at him. Maidens wasn't arrested, but witnesses said his wife came and picked him up.

Court documents obtained by NewsChannel 5 show Brentwood Police charged Maidens back in February with Driving Under the Influence and Implied consent.

Police said Maidens was drunk when he drove his Black Infiniti into a transformer station. Middle Tennessee Electric confirmed it led to nearly 200 homes losing power for hours.

Instances that don't answer why, but signaled there may have been more to this picture perfect marriage than meets the eye.

Brentwood Police said it was family member who asked police to check on Rachael Maidens after not hearing from her in a while, but police would not discuss time of death.

Her family did not want to comment at this time.

Randolph Maidens still remains in a Williamson County Jail on a $2.5 million bond.

He's expected in court May 2.
