Mother of Morgan Co Toddler admits she lied
WATE Sunday July 13, 2014

The mother of a Morgan County toddler whose death is under investigation by the TBI is admitting that she lied about a very important detail regarding the circumstances surrounding the day the child died. In an interview with WATE-TV, Amanda Beaty says she told investigators that her boyfriend, Rodger Prince had just come into the home at the time her son, Levi, began choking on a cookie—the incident which she claims ultimately led to his death. Now Beaty says Prince had been babysitting the child while she was at the store. Beaty says she lied because Prince was ordered to stay away from the child due to a previous abuse case between Prince and the child. Beaty says she believes a heart condition or blood disorder led to the child’s death, while the preliminary autopsy showed blunt force injuries. A final autopsy could take up to 6 months.

The victim is then given an out of state phone number to call and make a payment in order to avoid their service being cut off. Officials remind you never to give personal or financial information over the phone, and to contact VEC direct with billing issues.

Former Sheriff's Deputy focus on USA Today Article
USA Today Saturday July 12, 2014

A former Cumberland County Sheriff’s deputy is the focus of an article in USA Today. The article focuses on current Crossville Police Officer Dustin Hensley, the officer who shot and killed Angela D. Smith following a burglary and high speed chase last year. Smith’s family has filed a $20 million wrongful death lawsuit, claiming excessive force. This is not the first time Hensley mortally wounded someone in the line of duty. Records show he shot and killed a Roane County man in 2009, while employed with the Roane County Sheriff’s Department. In both cases, Hensley was cleared of any wrongdoing.
