Arrest made in the 2001 murder of Joleen Abernathy Ingram

Investigators with the Giles County Sheriff’s Department in conjunction with the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at the home of David Arnold Johnson in Cannon County on March 16, 2018. Johnson was taken into custody and charged with First Degree Murder for the 2001 Murder of fifty-one-year-old Joleen Abernathy Ingram. The Sheriff’s Department has worked on this case since 2001 and recently discovered some new information that led Investigator Timmy Scott to take the case to a Giles County Grand Jury and subsequently indict Johnson for the murder. District Attorney Brent Cooper may release more details in another press release at a later date. Sheriff Helton said he knows this will not bring Joeleen back but may bring some comfort to her family and friends to know the Sheriff’s Office has developed probable cause and charged the person responsible for her death.
