Man wanted for questioning in murder of Nashville woman found dead near Opryland


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police have identified a man wanted for questioning in the murder of a Nashville woman.

Metro officials told News 2, 31-year-old Robert Johnson is wanted for questioning in the murder of 44-year-old Pamela Paz.

Johnson was reportedly Paz’ boyfriend at the time of her death.

“She was very closed off about her relationship with him, so I don’t know a lot of the details about their relationship, but in her own words she would say our goods are really good, but our bad’s are really bad,” Kendall Smith told News 2.

Smith, the daughter of Paz, said the couple has been in an on and off again relationship since 2018.

Paz was found dead Sunday morning on Pennington Bend Road near Music Valley Drive underneath the Briley Parkway overpass.

“They left my grandma’s house and that was the last time that anybody had seen her,” said Smith.

She said the last time family saw her mother, she was with Johnson.

The medical examiner said Paz died from apparent strangulation. Anyone with information on the murder of Pamela Paz is asked to call metro police or Crimestoppers at 615-74-CRIME.

No other information was immediately released.
