Evans arrested in weekend murder of a local woman


An Alamo man has been charged with one count of first degree murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon following the death of 30 year old Ashley Clem on Saturday, April 10.

A joint homicide investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and the Crockett County Sheriff’s Department (CCSD) has resulted in the arrest of Kenny Evans, 40.

At the request of 28th District Attorney General Frederick Agee, TBI agents joined investigators with the CCSD in investigating the death of Clem after deputies responded to a 911 call from Dupree Road on Saturday evening.

Deputies found Clem fatally shot inside of her home. During the course of the investigation, authorities developed information that identified Evans as the individual responsible.

Early morning Tuesday, April 13, Evans was located in Brownsville and taken into custody by TBI agents with the assistance of the CCSD and Brownsville Police Department. Evans has been booked into the Crockett County Jail and is being held without bond.
