I really thought we had a thread for this gentleman, but I cannot locate it.

Investigators said there's a break in a murder case from 25 years ago in Giles County.

Larry Hughes' family would probably give just about anything to find out who killed him and why.

Perhaps all it took was 60 seconds on the local radio station.

“It's bothered me all of this time,” said Harold Hughes, Larry's brother. “I have prayed that before I die I would find out just exactly what happened. They need to fess up and take responsibility if that's what they did.”



GILES COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – He was killed two decades ago, and now his wife is charged in his murder. News 2 in Tennessee spoke with a man who may have found the crime scene in Larry Hughes’ murder.

It’s a dream home for the Pierces, but the property might have a dark past. The story starts a decade ago when Richard Pierce ripped up his carpet for new flooring.


Mary Ann Hughes, Larry’s wife, was arrested and charged last month for first-degree murder.

Her first court appearance is fast approaching as Pierce prepares to possibly take the stand as a state witness.
