TBI investigating death of Byrdstown woman

By: AMANDA HILL BOND
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation
is conducting an investigation in the recent
death of a Byrdstown woman.
Due to the early deadline last week, the
PICKETT COUNTY PRESS was unable to obtain
accurate information concerning the
death of Rosemary Dyer by presstime.
Pickett County Sheriff Clois Brown
stated to the PRESS, “An investigation is
being conducted by the TBI and I am unable
to release detailed information regarding
this case, all I can say is there is
possibly a victim.”
The PRESS received limited information
this week from TBI Spokesperson Kristin
Helm, but she did confirm possible foul
play. According to Helm, on Christmas
evening at around 8:40 p.m., Pickett
County Emergency Medical Services responded
to a 911 call at 637 North Main
Street (pictured above).
Rosemary Dyer, 36, was transported to
the Livingston Regional Hospital emergency
department with life-threatening
injuries. After being stabilized she was
flown to Erlanger Medical Center later
that night. Her injuries were sustained to
her head which could possibly have been
inflicted from repeated trauma.
In last week’s edition of the CLINTON
COUNTY NEWS, the published obituary of
Mrs. Dyer stated that she passed away
the following morning at Erlanger and
was buried in Peolia Cemetery in Clinton
County on Tuesday, Dec. 30th.
The District Attorney confirmed that an
autopsy was performed on Dyer and
there have been no charges filed. The
case is still ongoing at this time.
