Sheriff acknowledges work to be done in death investigation

Posted on Friday, December 29, 2017 at 9:53 am

The following statement was just released from Grundy County Sheriff Clint Shrum.

“I sincerely appreciate the fact that all but one news outlet has honored our request to walk through this investigative process one step at a time.  

“Families should be able to grieve without being placed in the spotlight. It also gives us a chance to get those involved properly de-briefed. That process has not yet been completed.  Let us not forget that everyone involved in this are human beings.

“As this investigation moves forward we will share what we can, when we can. We will not answer any questions out of turn or without fact.

“We do acknowledge that Shelby Comer did  suffer from a single gunshot wound., however the proximate cause of death has not been determined.  This agency is and will continue cooperating with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.”
