Cookeville Kidnapping Suspect in Custody

Cookeville Kidnapping Suspect in Custody
Peg Broadcasting News Thursday January 12, 2017

The man suspected of breaking into an elderly Cookeville woman’s home, stealing her car and kidnapping her has been arrested. Police nabbed 34-year-old Russell Lee Vaughn, of Cookeville, Thursday morning at a South Willow Avenue business. This was after an exhaustive manhunt that began around 7 p.m. Wednesday night when an observant citizen saw the elderly victim in the vehicle with Vaughn. The 74-year-old victim mouthed the words “help me” and the citizen notified Cookeville police. Almost 12 hours later, authorities say that Vaughn let the elderly woman out of the car near a motel on South Willow in Cookeville. Authorities say she had some scratches but was “relatively unharmed”. Initial reports indicate that the victim did not know Vaughn, who may have had a gun when he allegedly broke into the woman’s home and forced her into the vehicle. Police caught up with the suspect vehicle and pursued the car for a short distance before Vaughn ditched the car and fled on foot. Police brought out the K-9 dogs and went door-to-door to notify nearby residents to lock their doors and remain inside during the search and Park View Elementary was placed on lockdown. Throughout the search, Cookeville Mayor Ricky Shelton posted updates and safety advisories on his Facebook page and around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Mayor Shelton posted on Facebook that Vaughn had been arrested
