CUMBERLAND COUNTY – A joint investigation by Special Agents with the Drug Investigation Division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and detectives with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, has resulted in the arrest of a New York woman, in connection to the 2018 drug-related death of a Crossville resident.
In February 2019, Agents joined detectives in investigating the July 2018 death of Julia Meade (DOB 06/03/1961) in her Crossville home.
