Grayson Co. Murder Arrest

More than a week after a Leitchfield man is discovered dead by a newspaper delivery person, police charge a friend of his with murder.

Twenty-nine-year-old Tommy Lindsey was found dead on September 12th, just a few yards from his home on Colonial Drive. He had died from “blunt head force trauma” after being run over by a car. Earlier this week, Leitchfield police arrested Harrell Thomas Mercer and charged him with murder.

Mercer, who was reportedly a friend of Lindsey’s, is also charged with hit and run, unlawful transaction with a minor and no insurance or registration. Mercer was taken to the Grayson County Detention Center.

Police say there was no indication of a fight prior to the hit and run and there is no indication drugs were involved. The investigation is still ongoing.
