This is a very bizarre and sad story.
The great niece of Johnny Cash was found stabbed to death and stuffed in a box in Baxter, Tennessee. Investigators said Cash was killed during a struggle at a home in the early morning hours. Her boyfriend was also stabbed but managed to escape the house and drive himself to a hospital.
Police do have a man in custody who they say is a friend. Investigators said the three had been out Tuesday night and got into an argument after returning to the home. It was then that the struggle ensued and the stabbings occurred. A motive was not immediately known, but when asked if drugs and alcohol were involved, the Sheriff responded, "Probably."
The suspect has a lengthy criminal history with 20 entries into the Putnam County jail. He's also been arrested in 5 other counties on charges ranging from drug possession to aggravated assault.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Cash family during what is surely a hard time for all of them. CLICK HERE for more information.
