NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Two new people were added to Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list this week, including a man wanted on seven warrants for drug and weapons charges and a convicted felon accused of robbery.
The list is updated every Wednesday on the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) Criminal Warrants Division Facebook page, with anywhere from two to four new suspects added to the list each week for a range of violent offenses.
Outstanding warrants for crimes like homicide and child sexual abuse are some of the most common. The public exposure from the list has helped police capture several people wanted in violent crimes— some dating back as far as 2020.
Amid a slew of arrests last week, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Bowling Green, Kentucky helped Metro police capture the second suspect in an August 2020 drunk driving crash that killed two people.
A total of at least 29 wanted fugitives have been arrested since the MNPD’s criminal warrants division began publishing the list in mid-October. Below is a full list of the suspects who made Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list the week of April 12.
1. William Hall Judice
At number one, William Hall Judice, 32, is considered this week’s “Top Most Wanted” fugitive, according to the MNPD.
Judice, who also appeared at number one on the list last month, has outstanding warrants for rape and three counts of aggravated assault with bodily injury.
He was last seen in West Nashville. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the MNPD at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
2. De’Tynn Q Smith
De’Tynn Smith, 19, 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.
3. Jamion Wynn
Jamion Wynn, 28, is wanted on an outstanding warrant for first-degree murder dating back to February 2022, as well as a warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
