Clarksville Police are looking to revitalize a cold case involving an aggravated assault that took place two years ago that has left a local woman partially paralyzed from the incident.
Police are asking for the public’s help in a October 2010 aggravated assault case, which left a 32-year old woman, who is now 34-years old, Keisha Reed, partially paralyzed, confined to a nursing home and without any memory of the brutal assault which took place.
The aggravated assault took place October 6th, 2010 with the original call coming into 911 around 7:30 p.m. as a medical call after Reed was found in poor health.
About a week later of Reed’s attack, police were contacted after a family member received information that Reed had been body-slammed onto the ground outside of a Greenfield Drive residence.
Police are asking anyone with information about the assault to contact 931-648-0656.
Clarksville Police are once again asking for the public’s help in solving another case.
Police are trying to locate family members of 72-year old William Clarence Rucker in reference to an ongoing investigation.
Police say they received information that Rucker’s family members may live in the Nashville area, but officers have not been able to make contact with them.
Anyone with information are asked to call Detective Demone Chestnut at 931-648-0656.
Christian County Attorney Mike Foster wants to remind area residents that October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month.
The Office of the Christian County Attorney encourages all citizens to be aware of the importance of detecting and preventing domestic violence.
Foster was quoted as saying that for too many years, domestic violence was either ignored or treated as a private matter whereby many victims, including children, were left to suffer without hope or support.
Fosters added that state legislators have answered the call by supporting strong domestic violence laws including the recently adopted Amanda’s Law.
Victims of domestic violence, are strongly advised to call the Sanctuary Inc. hotline at 270-886-8174 or the County Attorney’s office at 270-887-4114.

A second grade teacher at Martin Luther King Elementary School was surprised this morning when a local office supply store presented her with over a thousand dollars worth of school supplies.
The only teacher in western Kentucky to receive a thousand dollars worth of items from Office Max was Carol Bugg at MLK Elementary. Ms. Bugg has taught for seven years and described the experience as rewarding, while thanking everyone involved in choosing her.
MLK Principal Sarah Newman nominated Ms. Bugg for the honor and said she makes learning fun for her students.
Office Max Manager Steve Gray presented the items to Ms. Bugg and said the store wants to alleviate some of the expenses teachers often pay for out of their own pockets.
The honor came as a surprise to Ms. Bugg, who had a class full of students when the media, central office personnel and several Office Max employees walked into her room shortly after 10am.
