Nashville police have released the name and photograph of a suspect in the murders of Clayton Beathard and Paul Trapeni III.
According to Metro Police, 23-year-old Michael Mosley of Pegram, Tennessee, was seen on surveillance footage from the Dogwood Bar on Division Street where the altercation began. It’s unclear if he was the person who committed the murder, however he is believed to have information regarding what happened that night. According to police, the altercation began “over an unwanted advancement made by a man toward a woman in the bar.”
Police have also revealed the identity of a third victim, Alvin Jefferson Bethurum, who survived the stabbing and is recovering from his injuries.
According to WKRN, Mosley was involved in a stabbing in 2015, and was involved in a inmate brawl at Cheatham County Jail earlier this year, and was also arrested for aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury last month.
