The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is hoping the FBI can help in the Nichole “Nikki” Burgess case. Burgess, formerly of Crossville, was last seen at her Hermitage home in May. Caleb Cannon, her ex-boyfriend and the father of Nikki’s 10 year old son, remains a person of interest. Investigators have not discovered new evidence, but they believe the FBI can conduct a more in-depth analysis of the hair, fabric and fiber samples that were collected at the scene. Anyone with information on the disappearance of Nichole Burgess should contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
