A joint investigation by TBI, the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office, and the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office has led to indictments for Gabriel Seth Box, 21, of New Johnsonville, in connection with a 2021 homicide.
On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Henderson County Grand Jury returned indictments in the 2021 death of a 19-year-old Bath Springs woman, charging Box with one count of premeditated first-degree murder, one count of theft, and two counts of tampering with evidence.
On Nov. 19, 2021, at the request of former 24th Judicial District Attorney General Matt Stowe, TBI special agents joined the investigation into the murder of Felicity Nicole Inman, shortly after authorities found her body at an address on Hwy. 412 in Decatur County.
During the investigation, authorities determined that Inman’s homicide occurred in Henderson County, and, at the request of 26th Judicial District Attorney General Jody Pickens, continued to investigate, subsequently developing information leading to the arrest of Box as the person responsible for the crime.
When agents learned that Box was out of state, they worked with the U.S. Marshals Service Two Rivers Violent Task Force and the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force to locate and arrest Box on Wednesday, Oct. 5, in Gulf Shores, Ala. Box was taken into custody and booked into the Baldwin County Jail in Alabama and held without bond pending extradition to Tennessee.
