Shortly after Mom’s murder we had been advised to register with “VINELink” (www.vinelink.com), Victim Information and Notification Everyday. By doing so we were notified immediately when Reed’s incarceration location/housing status changed.
On November 8 around 5:40 a.m. my cell phone rings and it is a number from Kentucky. Given the hour of the call I opted for it to go to voicemail. I immediately played the call back, it was an automated message. Even though it was an automated message, it was a call I had been waiting for. At the same time, emails went to both Amy and me.
The call and emails were notifiying us it was time for Reed to transfer out of the Hamilton County jail. Later that day/evening, Reed was moved to Bledsoe County Correcttional Complex-(BCCX), Pikeville, TN (http://www.tn.gov/correction/institutions/bccx.shtml.)
What I found out in this brief area with TDOC was reassuring. It shows his eligibility for parole is 8/1/2069. He will be just shy of 102! That ought to give him plenty of time to consider all the turmoil and hurt he has caused in the world!
Currently they are in the process, or may have already completed, the classification process. Once this is complete, either he will stay in this complex, or may be moved again to serve out his sentences. If his location, or anything else changes I will let you know.
Here is a link to the Tennessee Department of Corrections website which will take you to Reed’s “Felony Offender Information” https://apps.tn.gov/foil-app/results.jsp
If this link does not take you to the correct page, you may access it by going to the Tennessee Department of Corrections website, on the right margin, click on FOIL-Inmate Search, Click “Search Now”, you can either search by name (and birthdate/age-he is 45 and turns 46 this month), or you can Search by TOMIS ID. His TOMIS ID # IS 00271381. You will need to enter all digits, including the “00″ in front of the other digits. Follow the directions on the screen and it will take you to his information.
As I continue to find out more information I will let you know. I thought it important enough to share with you all what has happened after the sentencing hearing.
As always, I cannot thank you enough for staying in touch with Mom and praying for her! Thank you so much for loving her!
