FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Around the clock investigation by Homicide Unit and TITANS (The Investigative Team Addressing Neighborhood Shootings) detectives has led to the identification of Wilton Alexander, 16, and Trameisha Farris, 15, as suspects in Thursday afternoon’s murder of Edgar Utley V, 15, on the front porch of his Pointer Court home. Juvenile Court arrest orders charging Alexander and Farris with criminal homicide have been issued. The two are believed to be together. Anyone seeing them or knowing their whereabouts is asked to immediately contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.

The investigation, being led by Detective Chris Cote, shows that Utley was visited by a female (alleged to have been Farris) for about 10 minutes before the two walked onto the front porch where a gunman (alleged to have been Alexander) was waiting. A struggle ensued, during which Utley was fatally shot. He died shortly after arriving at Vanderbilt. The male and female involved fled.

At this point in the investigation, robbery appears to have been the motive.
