    On Feb. 8, 1990, Dr. Hyram Kitchen was gunned down in the driveway of his Northwest Knox County home.

    "This is just where somebody, it appears to be an execution, come up, bam, bam, bam, bam, no DNA that we can find, nothing that we can link back to someone," said David Davenport, chief of the Knox County Sheriff's Office cold case investigations unit.

    Witnesses reported hearing arguing that morning, and Davenport said it appears Kitchen ran from his killer. His body was found 100 feet from his car, which still had the engine running.

    In this article they talk about how they sent out an alert that they think a militant animal rights extremist group may have targeted him due to his profession, and how they had called the FBI in to assist with the case.
