NASHVILLE, Tenn. - New details this morning on one of Nashville's most notorious unsolved crimes. The detective who recently took over the Tabitha Tuders disappearance is talking about 3 persons of interest in the case. Detective Steve Jolley moved downtown from North Precinct last Summer to take over the Tuders case. It's a mystery other detectives have spent 10 years trying to solve. You may remember 14 year old Tabitha Tuders disappeared back in 2003 after failing to show up at her school bus stop in East Nashville. Detective Jolley tells us he's currently looking at 3 men he calls strong persons of interest. One is a man who's currently behind bars charged with murder in Wayne County, whose alibi has recently come into question. The other 2 are men investigators have been looking at for years, but Detective Jolley says still can't be eliminated as suspects. Jolley tells us he actually volunteered to take over the Tuders case. Here's what he told us when we asked him why.

Jolley is also looking for anyone that might know about a rusted crimson colored van neighbors spotted the morning Tuders disappeared. Neighbors say the driver of that van was acting suspicious, but as of yet, police have not been able to locate any additional information on it.
