Around 7 o’clock Wednesday morning, a resident contacted Dickson County dispatch to report a suspicious vehicle, on Sam Vineyard Road in Dickson County.
A deputy with the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office responded to that call.
After a period of time, when the deputy failed to check in, attempts were made to track him and his vehicle, via GPS.
An officer with another agency found the deputy’s vehicle, located in a wooded area off Bear Creek Valley Road, about two miles away from the location of the initial call.
The deputy was found inside the car, deceased.
Based on video evidence and other information developed at the scene, it was determined that the individual responsible for the deputy’s death is Steven Joshua Wiggins.
Wednesday TBI agents arrested Erika Castro-Miles, of Dickson, in connection to the death of Sgt. Daniel Baker. No new information is available about Castro-Miles at this time.
