    TN - Tony Drumwright, 15. Jackson. 25 August, 1999

    On Aug. 15, 1999, his parents came home and couldn't find him. Then they saw a bullet hole in their bathroom and the family's gun missing.

    Becky Drumwright's husband ran outside where he found their son face down by their back porch, dying from a gunshot wound.

    The next day, everything changed when police showed up with crime tape for a scene that had already been cleaned up.

    "The sheriff said, 'I've got good news and bad news. The good news is he didn't do this to himself. The bad news is somebody else did,'" Becky Drumwright said.

    Becky Drumwright not only lost her son, she lost her marriage. Refusing to move on, she demanded action. She remained infuriated and heartbroken that the case never took shape.

    More than 15 years after his murder, the body of McKenzie teenager Tony Drumwright will be exhumed...

    Stowe’s (the DA's) office will hold a news conference about the case at 11 a.m. on Friday at Carroll Memorial Gardens on Hwy. 22 in McKenzie.

    "Tony was shot at a distance from three feet," his mother, Becky Drumwright, said at a news conference in District Attorney Matt Stowe's office Friday afternoon. "It couldn't have been a suicide. We know it was a homicide. We know he was murdered."

    Drumwright, said when Stowe called to tell her that he wanted to exhume Drumwright's body and open the cold case, she said cried and thought, "My God, someone is finally doing something."
