Neighbor Arrested, Charged in Death of Carroll County Man
Jackson, TN (WDEF) – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), working alongside the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, have arrested and charged a Yuma man in connection to the death of his neighbor.
The TBI joined the investigation into the apparent shooting death of Ben Cole Birdwell, shortly after authorities found the body of the 64-year-old on a railroad easement near his School House Road property.
Authorities developed information leading to Birdwell’s neighbor, David Anderson, 59, as the individual responsible for the crime.
On Saturday evening, Anderson was arrested and charged with one count of Second Degree Murder and one count of Tampering with Evidence.
Authorities subsequently booked Anderson into the Carroll County Jail on $150,000 bond.
