Woman’s death ruled homicide 3 months after body found at trash facility


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three months after a woman’s body was found at a trash facility, the medical examiner’s office has ruled her death a homicide.

Ashley Brown’s body was found on December 21 at AAA Disposal on Freightliner Drive in South Nashville.

The 27-year-old woman had been reported missing four days earlier after she was not seen or heard from after leaving a friend’s apartment on 25th Avenue North.

Police said Brown’s body is believed to have been in a dumpster near the apartment building before it was transported to the refuse facility.

Ashley’s parents continue their plea for information about her death.

Her father, Trever Brown, told News 2 over the phone Friday that detectives are still in need of information.

“Anybody that has seen or heard anything, no matter how big or small, please call Nashville Police,” he said.

A motive or cause of death has not been released. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information on her murder is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
