Despite what a former prosecutor turned TV crime show host called a convincing amount of circumstantial evidence, a Dickson County grand jury did not return an indictment in the 1998 murder of 32-year-old Eric Baxter. District Attorney Dan Alsobrooks agreed to take the evidence in the 15-year-old case to a grand jury following the recent taping of an episode of TNT’s “Cold Justice.” The evidence was presented to a recalled session of the grand jury in August, but the jurors decided not to take any action at that time. According to the epilogue shown when the episode aired Tuesday, investigators are still working to gather more evidence in the case. Former Houston, Texas, prosecutor Kelly Siegler, former Las Vegas crime scene investigator Yolanda McClary and retired Houston homicide Detective Alan Brown joined Dickson County Detective John Patterson and TBI Special Agent Joe Craig in re-examining the evidence from the Aug. 20, 1998, murder. The show focused its attention on former Hickman County Sheriff’s Office Detective Tommy Wortham, who was leasing and trying to buy one of the markets owned by Eric Baxter’s family company before Eric and his mother Joy backed out of the deal. While no DNA or direct evidence linking Wortham to the crime scene in the Jones Creek Road home was discovered, the show hosts pointed out a long list of circumstantial evidence pointing at Wortham, including apparently catching him in a lie about ever owning a .38-caliber revolver, believed to have been the murder weapon. Not mentioned on the program was the fact that investigators attempted to obtain ballistics evidence that could match the gun used to kill Baxter, but a tree that Wortham and his former wife Scarlett allegedly had used for target practice at their home disappeared before police could search it for bullets. Investigators say not all of the evidence from their investigation was revealed on the television show and more information has been developed since the show aired Tuesday. TNT’s “Cold Justice” airs at 9 pm Tuesdays and is available on demand through most cable and satellite providers.
