At the request of 12th Judicial District Attorney General J. Michael Taylor, on January 12th, TBI agents joined deputies and officers in investigating the death of 39 year-old William Henry Dove who was found deceased in a Monteagle hotel room. His cause of death was determined to be acute combined drug toxicity. Investigators believe Bobby Northcutt as the individual who provided the drugs containing fentanyl to the victim.
On March 14th, the Grundy County Grand Jury returned an indictment charging the 60 year-old Northcutt with one count of Second-Degree Murder. On Thursday, TBI agents and Grundy County deputies arrested Northcutt.
Also, the Grundy County Grand Jury returned an indictment on 43 year-old Travis Heath King for Second-Degree Murder.
Investigators believe King distributed drugs containing fentanyl that resulted in the death of a Gruetli-Laager man in June 2021.
King is being held on $100,000 bond. Northcutt is being held on $50,000 bond and has been transferred to another facility. Both men have an initial appearance date for this Friday, March 25th.
