A 1998 Dickson County murder will be featured Tuesday night on a cable network’s new series examining cold cases around the country. “Cold Justice” airs at 9 pm Tuesday on TNT and next week will feature the unsolved murder of 32-year-old Eric Baxter of Dickson. Produced by Dick Wolf, creator of the popular “Law and Order” franchise, “Cold Justice” features former Texas prosecutor Kelly Sielger and former Las Vegas Crime Scene Investigator Yolanda McClary as they work with a team of investigators to help local law enforcement take a new look at old homicides. Tuesday’s program will include interviews with Dickson County Sheriff’s Office Detective John Patterson and TBI Special Agent Joe Craig while retired Houston homicide Detective Alan Brown reviews the evidence. Patterson was the chief deputy for Sheriff Tom Wall when Baxter’s mother discovered him shot to death in the family’s home on Jones Creek Road the night of Aug. 20, 1998. Det. Tim Eads was the lead investigator but is now the chief of police in Belle Meade. The program on Baxter’s murder was originally scheduled to air earlier, but Patterson said investigators asked that it be delayed while they checked out new information. Patterson said local officers are “hoping it will shake some trees” when the case is featured on the program. He said revisiting the case with the “fresh set of eyes” has already given investigators some new people to interview but as yet has not provided any information leading to a break in the case. A 1984 graduate of Dickson County High School, Baxter was general manager and secretary-treasurer of West Meade Corporation, a family owned business that managed three convenience stores in Dickson County. On the night he was killed, Baxter talked to his mother, Joy Potts Marsh, around 10:30 pm when she called to tell him she was almost home from an out-of-town trip. Police said when she arrived about 30 minutes later she found her son shot multiple times in a hallway of the home. Police said Baxter was shot 6-8 times in the head, chest and hand with with what they believe to be a .38-caliber handgun. There was no sign of forced entry or a struggle. Investigators have never disclosed any suspect or motive for the shooting. At least one previous “Cold Justice” episode has led to an arrest and conviction for a 2001 murder.
