The Cumberland County Fire Department was dispatched around 8 p.m. and arrived to flames shooting out of the front door and windows. Perry's body has been sent to the Medical Examiner's Office in Nashville to determine cause of death. Cumberland County Fire Chief Trevor Kerley told the Crossville Chronicle that the cause of the blaze was undetermined at the time of his report, however, he saw no indication that the fire was not an accident.

An official with the Tennessee Human Rights Commission has been arrested on charges of sexual exploitation of minors.

Nashville police said in a news release that 42-year-old compliance director Christopher Matthew Stephenson surrendered Tuesday on a sealed indictment charging him with two counts of sexual exploitation of minors and one count of aggravated sexual exploitation of minors. Police said Stephenson is accused of possessing and distributing sexual images of children. He is not accused of producing it.

The release said an internet protocol address used to access child pornography was registered to Stephenson's address. The release said sexual images of minors were found in a search of Stephenson's electronic devices.

Stephenson's bond was set at $500,000. Online jail records did not list an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

More than 2K bills and resolutions considered in Tennessee
AP Wednesday May 17, 2017

While much of the energy and attention of this year's legislative session was focused on Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's gas tax proposal, there were more than 2,000 other bills and resolutions considered by lawmakers before they concluded their business last week.

Some made a big splash before being quietly abandoned. For example, a bill seeking to do away with ending a 40-year-old state law granting legitimacy to children conceived through artificial insemination never came up for a hearing after making international headlines when it was introduced by a Republican lawmaker.

Haslam's transportation funding plan was ultimately passed and signed into law after a solid majority of lawmakers were convinced that the proposal made enough tax cuts in other areas to offset the state's first gas tax hike since 1989.
