FOX17 NEWS has learned that the bodies of 48 year old
Michelle Pinowski, 14 year old Jonathan Culpepper and 71 year old Marylea
Jordan have been released from the State Medical Examiner’s Office to
Williamson Funeral Home in Franklin.
14 year old Jonathan Culpepper’s old boy scout troop has
established a fund to send his 9 year old sister to summer camp until she turns
18. Troop 87 says “Jonathan loved summer camp, and the scouts feel that this
will be a nice way to honor him”. To contribute, you can donate to any Suntrust
location to the “Fund for the Benefit of Jonathan Culpepper’s 9 Year Old Sister”.
Pinowski’s aunt talked of her heartbreak after the tragedy
in a FOX17 NEWS EXCLUSIVE last night. She says her niece was turning her life
around when it was cut short. Deb Grey told us just Monday she received a call
that prompted her to look at Facebook only to find several “rest in peace”
messages. Grey says she is shocked, especially since she spoke wither her niece
only a few days ago. Grey says Michelle had a very difficult life, but within
the past few years, she was making major strides towards success. Grey says
more than anything she will miss hearing her niece’s voice and the victories
she was accomplishing in life. She says she is also going to miss watching
Michelle interact with her kids on Skype. She says Michelle was a very loving
and caring mother.

Nationally, statistics show seat belt use increased significantly in 2012 as compared to 2011 among drivers, right-front passengers and backseat occupants.
However, officials say more than 400 of Tennessee's crash fatalities last year involved unrestrained drivers or passengers.
The Governor's Highway Safety Office urges all motorists to buckle up.
