The Franklin Police investigation into Tuesday night’s death of a woman and her son continues this morning. Officers were summoned to a home on Mealer Street, in Franklin’s Hurstbourne Park neighborhood, at 5:25 Tuesday night, after the two were found deceased inside. Both had been shot. A family member called 9-1-1 after making the discovery.
It is with heavy hearts that we share the names of the 43-year-old woman and her 12-year-old son, Rachel and Asher Narancich. Our hearts hurt with the Narancich family during this time of unimaginable pain.
Though the investigation remains active, there is nothing to indicate there is an at-large suspect.
Statement from Page Middle Principal Dr. Eric Lifsey
“Asher had only been a student in our school for a short time, but he was a kind young man who was well liked by his teachers and his peers. Asher always had a smile on his face and was happy and upbeat. He loved being at school and being around his friends.
We have additional counselors at school for students and staff to help them cope with this loss.”
Statement from WCS Superintendent Jason Golden
“Our thoughts are with the Narancich family. I can’t imagine the pain they are experiencing. On behalf of Williamson County Schools, we send our condolences to them during this difficult time.”
