Incidents and Arrests:
Members of the LCSO have been busy investigating a possible Child Abuse case with significant injury to the victim. The young child has been placed in state custody. The investigation has been slowed as the parent(s) are not willing to speak further with the LCSO without an attorney.
Medical professionals from two hospitals have been working with our office to determine the history and cause of alleged injuries.
Division of Family Services and the Juvenile Office are assisting with the investigation.
The morning of March 18 Deputy Leadbetter stopped a 2004 Chevrolet which matched the description of a vehicle that left a Grundy County business without paying for fuel. The vehicle was found to have been stolen from New Madrid County Missouri and both occupants are from the State of Tennessee. We arrested Kyle Wayne Keymon, 26 and Sarah D. Morris, 29 for alleged Tampering with a Motor Vehicle.
Deputies are now serving a search warrant on the contents of the vehicle due to other information/evidence collected at the time of the stop. New Madrid County authorities have been notified of the vehicle recovery.
Member(s) of the Chillicothe Police assisted on the investigation.
