Neighbors Remain On Edge As Manhunt For Kirby Wallace Continues

WOODLAWN, Tenn. - Kirby Wallace is believed to be responsible for a string of violent crimes including murder and arson, and while the manhunt continues neighbors are staying vigilant.

Law enforcement officers are closing in on Kirby Wallace and collapsing the perimeter in the Woodlawn community after multiple sightings.

Debbie Castro was stopped at a checkpoint and couldn’t go home for hours on Wednesday.

Castro said, “I couldn’t come home! I called my friends I said ‘I’m homeless.’”

Eventually, they cleared the area and she got to go back to her dog— Queenie.

Castro said she’s not scared of Kirby Wallace because she’s from New York.

She’s taking precautions.

Castro said, “I had my son in law wait out here so I could water the plants.”

She wants him caught so she can spend time outside on her porch.

Castro said, “This guy is elusive as a butterfly.”

A Volunteer with military experience came to the neighborhood off Blooming Grove Road to check on residents who live right outside the perimeter. He walked around with his dog. Castro welcomed the check up.

She thinks people have underestimated suspect Kirby Wallace.

Castro said, “This guy is pretty smart for a dumb guy.”

Law enforcement officers want to remind the public in the Woodlawn community to lock their doors and cars. Call 911 if you see something suspicious.
