The TBI's investigation began in October 2020, after receiving a tip that Crowder ordered a childlike sex doll to be shipped to his home.

TBI agents executed a search warrant at Crowder’s residence and found at least six childlike sex dolls, several of them dressed in children’s clothing, according to a TBI press release.

The Davidson County Grand Jury returned indictments, charging Crowder on May 19. He was booked into the Davidson County Jail Friday where, at the time of this release, he was being held on $30,000 bond.
