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. | Nashville News, Weather
