Kentucky State Police detectives began canvassing the area for leads which later developed a suspect in middle Tennessee.

On Friday, September 10th,  a detective with Kentucky State Police testified before a Graves County Grand Jury who returned an indictment for Facilitation to Murder against 32-year-old Alexander James of Nashville, TN.

Friday afternoon, KSP investigators, along with various members of Tennessee law enforcement, located James at his residence in Nashville where he was interviewed and placed under arrest.  He is currently lodged in Nashville, TN awaiting extradition to Kentucky.

On Tuesday, September 14th, Kentucky State Police detectives obtained a warrant for 32-year-old Enrique "Dane" Decoursey of Smyrna, TN. Detectives learned Decoursey, an over-the-road truck driver, was in Maryland.

Kentucky State Police contacted law enforcement in Maryland who later spotted Decoursey's truck near Upper Marlboro, Maryland.  Decoursey was arrested and charged with Murder.  He is currently awaiting extradition back to Kentucky.

Detectives continue their investigation and other arrests may be possible.  Anyone with information pertaining to this murder is asked to contact Kentucky State Police, Post 1.
