Clarksville Police Officers then began going through the crime scene looking for evidence, including running the police K-9’s over the scene.

The man was later identified as Douglas James Deante Ramey, a 27 year old Clarksville Resident. Once the next of kin were notified, Clarksville Police Department spokesman Officer Jim Knoll released the name of the victim to the media.

Even before the name of the victim was released, family and friends had began to gather at the crime scene, standing in groups  just outside of the police line. Emotions were running high with public exclamations of both frustration with the lack of information coming from the police, and highly visible anger at who ever may have “murdered” this young man.

This “unattended death” is being investigated as a homicide.  The lead investigator is Detective Tim Finley. Anyone with information on this crime should contact him at 931.648.0656, ext 4008 or the TIPSLINE 931.645.8477.
