New detective assigned to decade-old Dickson Co. cold case


DICKSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – It’s been nearly ten years since Franklin Scott Brown was found shot to death in Dickson County. He was killed on August 12th, 2009 and authorities continue to investigate.

Now a new detective has been assigned to the case.

Brown was found in his van on the side of Lee Brown Road, near the Hickman County line. Several persons of interests have been identified and police plan to re-interview some of them.

“I think it should’ve never ever gotten to the point where it became a cold case because of what they had found outright in the initial investigation, and then to be shut down so quickly after just a few months, and then no communication from TBI, or from the Dickson detective that was over it. I mean they just shut us completely out,” said Linda Green, Brown’s mother.  

If you have any information that could help the investigation call the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office.
