An investigation by the Crossville PD and the TBI has brought about the arrest of local Michael Dale for the shooting death of 21 year old Kelsey Nicole Brady. According to reports, the shot that killed Brady was the result of an altercation between Dale and another man. Projectiles from the shotgun struck through an inner wall in Dale’s home and killed Brady, who was in an adjacent room. Her body was found in the Old Mail Road home early Saturday morning. Dale has been arrested and charged with one count of Aggravated Assault Resulting in Death, one count of Aggravated Assault, and one count of Reckless Homicide, and is being held in the Cumberland County Jail on a $200,000 bond.
