Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for a prisoner charged with the reckless homicide of another inmate. A Johnson County Grand Jury has indicted 32 year old Montrez Duncan on one count of Reckless Homicide and one count of Tampering with Evidence. The investigation began after the death of Timothy Tillery on July 19th. Tillery, 24, was an inmate at the Northeast Correctional Complex in Mountain City and was found unconscious in his cell on July 18th. Agents learned that Timothy Tillery had an on-going dispute with fellow prisoner Montrez Duncan. On July 18th, Tillery entered Duncan’s cell and the two were involved in a physical altercation. According to the TBI, Duncan and another inmate later carried Tillery, who was semiconscious, back to his cell. He was later found by guards during a routine count. Timothy Tillery was transported to the hospital, where he died the next day. Duncan was booked Monday on a $50,000 bond and remains in custody at the Northeast Correctional Complex.
