MEMPHIS, Tenn. — “Innocent people you know? That`s the way you felt. Harmless people. They wouldn`t have bothered anybody.”
The sight of Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents at the home off Glen Springs Road of 66-year-old Robert Bailey and 41-year-old Tammie Bailey rattled the small community of Drummonds in Tipton County back in July.
“They wanna know who it was, why they did it.”
Jason Holland was arrested for the murders a few months ago, but over the weekend we learned a man by the name of Michael Cullum is also accused of playing a part in the crime.
On Monday, WREG’s Shay Arthur obtained the four-page indictment handed down by the Tipton County Grand Jury. In the indictment it alleges Cullum stole cigarettes, a wallet, food and pills from the father and daughter.
Cullum was also accused of robbery in his other pending double murder case. This one was a month earlier in June, just seven and a half miles up the road outside of Millington.
In that case, investigators claim Cullum admitted to killing his neighbors- Brenda and Rhonda Dukes- to friends and took Lortab pills from their home.
On Monday, neighbors said there had been speculation he was involved in the Drummond’s murders.
“We had heard that he was accused of those quite some time back.”
While the small communities are sickened by the loss of life, they’re thankful to have more answers about who was allegedly behind the senseless violence.
