Deputies say they were called to a Brazil's home on Commissary Hollow Road in Indianan Mound and found Dillow stabbed to death.

Agents say Brazil removed his clothes to try and wash the blood off and lied to deputies when they responded to his initial 911 call where he told agents he got home and found Dillow dead.

Dillow's niece Christa Gladson contacted NewsChannel5 and released the following statement.

She was so nice to everyone she met and she was just a burst of happiness

The incident remains under investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Stewart County Sheriff's Office.
