A 25-year-old man is in custody in Tennessee, accused in the brutal murders of seven people including his parents, and injuring an eighth person, but this mass killing didn’t involve the one thing that would have earned national headlines.
The suspect, identified as Michael Cummins, was arrested after a search. According to WSMV, the state medical examiner says all of the victims died from “blunt force trauma or sharp force injuries.”
If all reporting of grisly murders was equal, what would they be calling this on network news broadcasts? Would it be “blunt instrument violence?” How about “knife violence?”
The Nashville Tennessean said the suspect spent “a little more than a year in the Sumner County jail” after having pleaded guilty to attempted arson and aggravated assault relating to an attack on a woman identified as Pam Sanabria. That was two years ago, and Cummins was released in January on probation for ten years, according to the newspaper.
