NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — An 18-year-old suspect in an aggravated assault and burglary is among two people who were added to the Metro Nashville Police Department’s “Most Wanted” list this week.
The list is updated every Wednesday on the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) Criminal Warrants Division Facebook page with 10 suspects police are trying to track down. Police have been searching for some people featured on the list for more than a year.
It’s not uncommon for the suspects listed to have multiple outstanding warrants. Many charges also involve violent crimes. Of those featured on this week’s list, almost half are wanted on either murder or homicide charges, while many others are charged with assault.
One of the suspects newly added to this week’s list is the youngest person to be featured on the “Top 10 Most Wanted” list since the MNPD’s criminal warrants division began publishing it in mid-October last year.
However, he is only a year younger than Nashville’s “Top Most Wanted” fugitive, who is accused of first-degree murder. Police say the public exposure from the list has aided in the arrest of several wanted fugitives.
Just last week, officers arrested a man accused of shooting and injuring a woman in Oct. 2021 and then killing a 52-year-old man only a few months later. Another man on the list was arrested this week after three young children were reportedly found living in “abhorrent conditions.”
In total, at least 44 wanted fugitives have been taken into custody since the police department began publishing the list in mid-October last year. Below is a full list of the suspects who made Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list the week of June 7.
1. De’Tynn Q Smith
At number one, De’Tynn Smith, 19, is considered this week’s “Top Most Wanted” fugitive, according to the MNPD. Smith has regularly appeared on the “Most Wanted” list since March 8.
He is believed to be the third and final suspect in the April 2022 murder of 39-year-old Tywane Miller. The incident happened in the parking lot of a soon to open 7-Eleven gas station near the intersection of Maxwell and Gallatin Avenues.
Initial reports from police indicated that Miller was shot and killed by at least one person who got out of a white Ford Flex. Miller died at the scene and a passenger in his car suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
After the shooting, an officer reportedly saw the Flex on Shelby Avenue at I-24. The officer pursued the vehicle as it sped off, but eventually ended the pursuit because of the potential danger to other drivers.
The Flex then got onto I-40 and hit the center retaining wall and four other cars before coming to a stop on the interstate between Fesslers Lane and Elm Hill Pike.
Three occupants, including one believed to be Miller, then got out of the Flex and carjacked a 35-year-old Nashville man who was driving a 2013 Subaru Forester SUV, according to police. The Subaru was later found abandoned in a Bordeaux neighborhood.
On March 1, MNPD detectives arrested one of the suspects, Deshawn L. Smith, 31, on a first-degree murder and aggravated robbery indictment. Another suspect, Michael Clay, 31, was charged last September.
Smith is wanted on a grand jury indictment charging him with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and possession of a gun during the commission of a felony, according to the MNPD.
His last location is unknown. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the MNPD at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
2. Glenwan L. Hobson Jr.
According to the MNPD, Glenwan Latroy Hobson Jr., 25, is wanted for criminal homicide, two counts of reckless endangerment, aggravated assault and a weapon violation.
Hobson has been featured on the “Most Wanted” list several times since November last year. He was last seen in North Nashville.
3. Adrian Abernathy
Adrian Abernathy, 29, is believed to have been behind the wheel of a stolen car in a November 2022 crash on the Rosa L. Parks Boulevard exit ramp from I-65 North. The crash reportedly killed Todd Bryant, 29, of Antioch.
Abernathy has outstanding warrants for vehicular homicide, three counts of aggravated assault, felon in possession of a weapon, theft of a motor vehicle, theft of a firearm, reckless endangerment and making a false report.
According to police, Abernathy initially said he was a backseat passenger in the stolen Lincoln Navigator SUV. However, over the course of the investigation, officers determined the seating positions were reversed and Abernathy was the one driving the car.
Authorities said he was traveling over 100 mph shortly before the crash. His last location is unknown.
4. William D. Tribue
William Tribue, 41, is wanted by the MNPD for vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, and domestic assault with bodily injury.
According to police, Tribue was one of three people inside a 2016 Dodge Charger during a deadly single-car crash in June 2021. Initial reports indicated the car was heading west on Trinity Lane at a high rate of speed when the car ran off the roadway and overturned.
One of the people in the car, Zavier Dunlap, 29, was killed. Tribue and another passenger were injured. Investigators reportedly found evidence of alcohol and drug use in the car. Tribue’s last location is unknown.
