Updated: Double Murder Timeline of Events

By  | 

Knoxville (WVLT) - As we continue learning about the brutal, and seemingly random, murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian, a community is asking why did this crime happen?

All evidence so far, points to the fact that Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were at the wrong place at the wrong time last Saturday night.

Volunteer TV's Jessa Goddard takes us on the path that led to the arrests of four men in connection with the crime.

Saturday night Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom have dinner at a local restaurant. They have plans to go to a friend's house to watch a movie. They never arrive.

Channon's mother becomes worried and calls the Newsom's to say she is filing a missing person's report and that they should, as well.

But it's too late.

Sunday morning: A railroad worker finds Chris Newsom's body between Ninth and Cherry Streets along the tracks.

But still no sign of Channon.

Monday: Christian's family, helping police search, locate her car along Glider Avenue, just down the tracks off Chipman Street.

Tuesday: 2316 Chipman street is swarming with investigators as they uncover Channon's body in a rental home, two blocks away from her abandoned car. Court records show the home is rented by Lemaricus Davidson and his brother, Letalvis Cobbins.

Police call them "persons of interest."

Thursday morning: Knox County, Kentucky state and federal authorities find Letalvis Cobbins and his friend, George Thomas at a home in Lebanon, Kentucky.

Thursday afternoon: Knoxville Police find Lemaricus Davidson at a home on Reynolds Street in the Mechanicsville area.

Friday Authorities serve a fourth person, Eric Boyd, with a federal warrant. Boyd and Davidson make an appearance in federal court in Knoxville. Cobbins and Thomas make an initial appearance in a federal courtroom in Louisville, Kentucky.

US Marshals in Western Kentucky call them all suspects in connection with at least some aspect of the double murder case. All four are being held by the Marshals Service's custody.
