The great-niece of the late singer Johnny Cash has been found stabbed to death and stuffed in a box in a house, authorities in Tennessee said Thursday.
Putnam County Sheriff David Andrews said Courtney Cash’s body was found Wednesday morning in a home near Cookeville, about 70 miles east of Nashville.
Cash’s body was found in a chest just inside the front door, Andrews said. A man identified as William Austin Johnson, Cash’s boyfriend, was being treated for stab wounds at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Andrews said.
