Comments Off on Heather Nicole Richmond, 34, of Church Hill, who made false 911 stabbing call, admits to using Methamphetamine

CHURCH HILL — A Church Hill woman who allegedly made a false stabbing report to Hawkins County 911 Monday morning was charged with misuse of 911, public intoxication, and other charges.

Around 6:15 a.m. Monday Church Hill Police Department Officer Ethan Mays was dispatched to a double stabbing complaint at 508 Short Street.1557f2e486b60250ade0f6c3a10313ac

The female caller reportedly told Hawkins County Central dispatch that there were two victims, but she was “difficult to understand and could not give them an exact location.”

Mays was able to locate the caller after the dispatcher “pinged” her cell phone, which indicated she was at 508 Short Street.

“Upon my arrival a male exited 505 Short Street and advised me that the female was behind his residence,” Mays stated in his report. “I made my way to the back of the house and initially did not see anyone, but a female identified as Heather Nicole Richmond stood up from a prone position in the tall grass of a field. Mrs. Richmond was detained and asked where the stabbing victims were located.”

Mays added, “She initially said they were in a barn on the other side of the field. A search of the barn yielded no one inside.”

Richmond, 34, 202 Jefferson Drive, Church Hill reportedly showed signs of being under the influence of a stimulant.

Mays said she admitted to using meth a few days prior.

She also reportedly made several “odd statements” including stating that her husband was one of the stabbing victims — when in fact her husband is incarcerated in the Hawkins County Jail.”

A purse located on the back porch of 505 Short Street contained Richmond’s ID and other personal effects, as well as several cut straws commonly used to ingest narcotics.

She was also allegedly in possession of a pill identified by Richmond as Methocarbamol.

Several residents on Short St. were contacted and residences searched for potential stabbing victims, but none were found.

“While en route to the jail, Mrs. Richmond spoke to herself, would not remain still, and stated that she had insects on her, all of which are commonly associated with meth use,” Mays said.

Aside from misuse of 911 and public intoxication, Richmond was charged with simple possession of a legend drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Another charge of filing a false report is pending completion of the CHPD investigation.
