(Murfreesboro, TN) We now have more details about the murder of two children inside a Cason Lane home on Thursday and the suicide of their father.
An undisclosed source told WGNS News that 46-year-old Jamie Lepore of Hazel Green, Alabama allegedly killed his wife inside their Alabama home well-over a month ago and fled the area with his two children. In an attempt to go unnoticed, he traded his vehicle for a truck that he drove to Murfreesboro, Tennessee where he called a long-time friend asking if he and his two sons could spend a few nights in his friend’s home on Cason Lane.
The source who disclosed information about the case to WGNS said that Lepore suggested his wife left him and their children about two months ago. Although those close to the family said Lepore’s wife would not have deserted their children, the father stuck with his story.
Friends or family called the Madison County Sheriff’s Office and asked that a welfare check be conducted at Lepore’s home in Alabama. It was during that welfare check that deputies realized something was wrong.
