NASHVILLE – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained an indictment for a woman accused of setting fire to a Lewis County home earlier this year.
On May 11th, after receiving information from the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office, TBI Agents began investigating a fire that occurred a day earlier at a home located at 300 Thomas Avenue in Hohenwald. During the course of the investigation, authorities determined the fire to be a case of arson and further developed information that Amanda Brooke Tripp (DOB 5-13-84) was the individual responsible for the crime.
