PARIS – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments in connection to an 18-year-old homicide case.
On June 8, 2001, the Paris Police Department responded to a home at 322 Rison Street in Paris, where investigators found Etta Etheridge (DOB: 4/6/29) inside unresponsive. Her death was ruled a homicide.
At the request of 24th District Attorney General, over the years that followed, TBI Agents and investigators from the Paris Police Department conducted an extensive joint investigation. Those efforts have led to new evidence and leads that ultimately led to Douglas Talley as the individual responsible for her death.
On Monday, the Henry County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Talley (DOB: 6/19/68) with one count of First Degree Murder and one count of First Degree Murder in the Perpetration of a Felony (Criminal Attempt to Commit Robbery). Tuesday, Talley was added to the TBI Most Wanted List. Today, Talley was located and arrested in Nashville by Metro Nashville Police.
Talley was booked into the Davidson County Jail and is awaiting transport back to the Henry County Jail. His bond is set at $250,000.
