A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Rutherford County from Wednesday at 9pm until Thursday at noon. 1-3" of snow/sleet and up to a 1/10" of ice is possible.
Detectives are investigating the death of a 29-year old Nashville woman who passed away at a home in Murfreesboro on Tuesday. Police were made aware of the female’s death by the daughter of the woman the victim was in charge of taking care of. The deceased woman was a home healthcare nurse who was found in the bathroom of a client’s home on Albany Court.
The incident report was labeled as an “unattended death.” The investigation of an unattended death is routine, although there is nothing routine about a 29-year old dying. The death rate in Tennessee for someone between the ages of 25 and 44 is 189.9 per every 100,000 residents, according to the Tennessee Health Department.
WGNS is not releasing the name of the deceased out of respect to the family. We will update you if there is more to this story in the near future after the completion of the investigation.
