Police: Woman killed while trying to sell computer on social media, arrest made in Tennessee
GLASGOW, Ky. – Police have arrested a man in Tennessee on a Glasgow homicide.
Melissa Miller, 54, who lived on Ann Avenue listed a computer for sale on Facebook Marketplace, Glasgow Police Department Major Terry Flatt said. A Tennessee man, Aaron Aiden Rodriguez, showed up late Sunday night to supposedly buy that computer but instead is accused of shooting Miller to death.
Rodriguez is then accused of leaving the scene in a white-four door vehicle with another woman, according to police.
Police identified the woman and charges against her are pending further investigation. Her name hasn’t been released.
Metro Nashville (Tenn.) homicide detectives found Rodriguez Thursday at his place of employment in Williamson County, Tennessee, a wealthy suburb of Nashville.
Rodriguez is charged with first-degree murder, was lodged in a Tennessee jail and his bond is set at $500,000. He will have to extradited back to Kentucky to face the charge in Miller’s death.
Police advise anyone who is using social media to advertise and sell an item to make the exchange in a well lit, populated area or even a police department parking lot, Flatt said.
