The investigation of the death of an Oak Ridge man in an apartment in December 2014 remains active and ongoing, a state law enforcement official said Wednesday.
The death of Thomas Steven Thrasher Jr. is being investigated as a homicide. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Tennesssee Bureau of Investigation at (800) TBI-FIND.
In response to questions, TBI spokesperson Leslie Earhart said she could not discuss any potential evidence in the case, including whether a suspect has been identified.
The TBI joined the investigation after Thrasher’s death more than four years ago at the request of Dave Clark, district attorney general in the Seventh Judicial District in Anderson County.
Thrasher, who was 29 and also known as â€œT.S.,â€ died December 8, 2014. He was found dead in a second-floor apartment when the Oak Ridge Police Department responded to a report of a possible intruder at about 4:40 a.m. that Monday at 615 West Vanderbilt Drive.
Thrasher lived with his family at Rolling Hills Apartments complex in central Oak Ridge.
Oak Ridge Today reported in February 2016 that the investigation was still open and ongoing.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
