Henry County Trustee David Stone Arrested Friday Night

David Stone, 41, was arrested Friday night on charges of intimidating election opponent Randi Allen French.

Paris, Tenn.- According to reports from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Henry County Sheriff's Office, Henry County Trustee David Stone was arrested Friday night on charges of intimidating an election opponent.

Stone, 41 of Clifty Village Road, was formally charged with civil rights intimidation in relation to a Tennessee Bureau of Investigation inquiry into alleged threats made against his opponent in the upcoming Democratic primary election, Randi Allen French.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, French began receiving threatening Facebook messages from Stone on Sunday, January 19 in relation to French's planned attendance at an upcoming political event, likely the wild game supper at Sulphur Well Church of Christ.

District Attorney General Hansel McAdams requested a TBI investigation be opened on Wednesday, January 22; TBI special agents determined the Facebook messages French received violated her civil rights under Tennessee law.

Sources report that Stone was removed from his office by TBI officials late Friday afternoon, and was booked into the Henry County Correctional Facility Friday evening.

He has since been released on $7500 bond and is due to appear in General Sessions Court on Thursday, January 30th.

David Stone has served as Henry County Trustee since 2006 and is currently seeking his third term in office in the upcoming election.

We will continue to provide updates on this story as it develops.

Human Remains Identified as Missing Henry Countian

Paris, Tenn.- A hunter's grisly discovery of human remains in Henry County woods have solved a missing person case, according to Henry County Sheriff's Office reports.

The Henry County Sheriff's Office received a call Friday afternoon reporting that a hunter had discovered what appeared to be human remains in the woods near Winsett Road and Old Springville Road.

After investigation from the Sheriff's Office and Coroner Danny Tucker, the remains are (pending positive identification) believed to be those of Michael Wayne Hendley, who has been missing since July 4, 2013. Hendley's truck was found parked on the side of Old Springville Road nearby on that date.

The remains are currently being sent to the Metro Medical Examiner's Office in Nashville for positive identification; no foul play is suspected.

The Sheriff's Office wishes to thank the public for assistance in the investigation as well as searches for Hendley, and is thankful that the matter is resolved for Hendley's family.
