MAURY COUNTY – An investigation by Special Agents with the Drug Investigation Division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the indictment and arrest of a Middle Tennessee woman, charged in a drug-related death.
In September 2019, TBI Agents began investigating the death of Casey Hollis (DOB 05/03/1990) of Franklin. She was found deceased on September 27th from what the investigation revealed was fentanyl toxicity.
