81-Year-Old Murder Victim's Daughter Seeks Justice
BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Brownsville Police Department are currently investigating the murder of 81-year-old Warlene Turner-Jones.
The TBI reports a shooting was reported around 10 p.m. Tuesday night at a house on North Monroe Avenue in Brownsville.
When Brownsville officers got to the house, they found 81-year-old Warlene Turner-Jones.
She was taken to a hospital, where she passed.
“She just loved people; she was a people person. She never met a stranger, you could be walking by, she’s out doing her gardening, doing her flowers, people walk by she’ll strike up a conversation with them and anyone she came in contact with loved her.”
Angela Jones is a daughter of Turner-Jones.
She tells us her mother was a Brownsville native, born and raised, who was loved and respected by the community.
She was well-known for her seamstry, chowchow, and gardening.
“My mother had a green thumb. I’m going to try to keep that going for her in memory of her, because this was something she loved doing.”
It is reported there were no-signs of entry or burglary. Jones appreciates the collaboration of the TBI and BPD, and just wants justice for her mother.
“Whoever took my mother’s life for no reason, turn yourself in, bring closure to our family, because my mother didn’t deserve this, she didn’t deserve it. Turn yourself in, I forgive you.”
No suspect has been identified at the moment, and the investigation is ongoing.
Jones asks if anyone knows anything about the shooting, to please contact the TBI or BPD.
