JACKSON – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have arrested and charged two men in connection to a double homicide last week in Toone, Tennessee.
On Friday, at the request of 25th District Attorney General Mike Dunavant, TBI Agents began investigating the deaths of Joe “Joe Duke” Robertson and Javarrie “Joe Joe” Robertson shortly after deputies from the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Department found their bodies in their Naylor Road home. Autopsy results are pending, but preliminary information indicates both victims died from gunshot wounds. During the course of the investigation, Agents, working alongside investigators from Hardeman County, developed information that led to Damein K. Hamer (DOB 3-8-91) and Jeremy Hamer (DOB 4-12-87) as two of the individuals responsible for the crime.
Today, investigators, with the assistance of the U.S. Marshal’s Service, arrested the cousins and charged each with two counts of First Degree Murder. At the time of this release, Damein Hamer (LEFT BELOW) was in the custody of the Benton County, Mississippi Sheriff’s Department awaiting extradition to Hardeman County. Jeremy Hamer was in the custody of the Hardeman County Jail after being arrested without incident in Bolivar, Tennessee earlier today. The investigation into this incident continues, with the possibility of additional arrests and charges. Anyone with specific information about this case should contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
