6 now arrested in man’s hanging death in Middle TN

TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (AP) — Two more people have been arrested in the death of a Middle Tennessee man found shot and hanging from a tree.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported Monday that Jamie Wilson Holland is charged with kidnapping and Bryan Dudley with murder in the 2017 death of David Edward Steele.

Authorities have said Steele, a white man, was reported missing that October. His body was found three weeks later, hanging from a tree.

District Attorney General Craig Northcott said Steele had been shot in the leg while trying to escape from people near his home, taken across the county line and hanged.

Bruce Edward Dorsett Jr., Shawna R. Haney, Voltaire Xavier Hickerson and Michael Andrew Taylor were arrested in December on similar charges.
