Funeral services set for 16 year old victim in quadruple killings

Funeral arrangements have been set for the 16 year-old found dead on Renegade Mountain last Thursday.

Jonathan Raymond Lajeunesse's family will receive friends at the Crossville Memorial Funeral Home on Wednesday, September 18, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The funeral will take place immediately afterwards.

A prayer vigil is set for Monday night in front of the Crossville Courthouse to remember Lajeunesse and the three other victims, Danielle Jacobson, Steven Presly, and Dominic Davis. It will begin at 7:00 p.m.

The four were found shot to death in a car along a rural road on Renegade Mountain.

Authorities have identified Jacob Bennett as a suspect in the case, though he has not been officially charged. Police arrested him Thursday night in Rhea Co. on a probation violation.
