The first incident occurred early on Tuesday, March 12. Cumberland County deputies responded to a 911 call from someone who had located what he believed to be a body at a home in the 80 block of Critter Creek Road in Crossville. When deputies responded, they discovered a male homicide victim outside of the home. The victim was identified as 36 year old Lowell Thomas (Chip) Simmons.

At approximately 10:00 p.m. Central, a second incident occurred at a home in the 2500 block of Vandever Road in Crossville. Three people had been shot. One of the people was 23 year old Makayla Manning who died at the scene. The other two individuals (a man and a woman) were hospitalized in Knoxville.

Autopsies will be performed in Nashville as part of the investigation.

An investigation into the incidents led to the arrest of 46 year old John Patrick Fields who was charged for the crimes at both locations. Fields was charged with two counts of First Degree Murder and two counts of Attempted First Degree Murder. He was booked into the Cumberland County Jail on $5,000,000 bond. The TBI continues to investigate the incidents, with the assistance of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, the office of 13th District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
