    Tony Drumwright: Authorities exhume slain boy’s body, change death to homicide but still no arrests [Exclusive]

    Tony, 15 at the time, was found in the back yard of his Carroll County home in 1999, with a bullet wound to the back of his head. A .38-caliber handgun was found by his feet. Initially, authorities thought the boy committed suicide and in turned, the crime scene was reportedly compromised when it was cleaned up immediately.

    Becky Drumwright, Tony’s mother, thought that foul play was involved, as Tony had no issues that led her to believe he was suicidal. Her thoughts were confirmed after an autopsy determined the boy did not kill himself. Further, someone shot Tony at a distance of around three feet, which would have been impossible for him to accomplish himself.

    “Let me tell you this. There were witnesses who saw who were on our property that day,” Drumwright told Grace. “The TBI investigation of that is just incredible. They have never even questioned those witnesses. I don’t think there is a proper investigation. That’s the first thing they should have done.

    Fast forward three years later and authorities still haven’t made any arrests.

    Tennessee special projects reporter at FOX 17, Dennis Ferrier, who covered the case heavily from day one, told Nancy Grace that “there’s nothing like a bad start to case” and suggested that the evidence that could have solved the case was destroyed early on, which in turn, is why the case may never be solved. Grace said that despite shoddy investigative work, new forensics technological advances can allow a way to still bring the shooter to justice.
