Knoxville, Tenn. – New details about a 1986 cold case have been released by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI).

TBI Intelligence analyst Amy Allen Emberton remarked, “There’s a lot of emotion that comes with being able to do this.” “There’s a lot of feeling attached to finally being able to give them a name after all these years.” TBI officers are keeping their fingers crossed for members of the public to come forward with new information about Jerry Harrison’s death. “And often the public doesn’t necessarily understand that what they think is irrelevant may be the only thing that will solve the case,” said Josh Melton, deputy director of the Criminal Investigations Division. The FBI is seeking input from anyone who may have knowledge relevant to the investigation.
