ONGOING TBI HOLLY BOBO INVESTIGATION YIELDS ADDITIONAL ARREST

JACKSON – Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have arrested and charged a Decatur County man in the ongoing casework into the murder of Holly Bobo. 

TBI Special Agents began their investigation into Bobo’s disappearance on April 13, 2011, the same day the 20-year old nursing student disappeared from her home. In the years since her disappearance, there has been an on-going and collaborative effort among TBI Agents, the 24th District Attorney General’s Office, and the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department to thoroughly follow all leads surrounding her disappearance. Recently, during the course of the investigation, TBI Agents developed information that on April 13, 2011, John Dylan Adams disposed of items he knew to be of evidentiary value to the case. John Dylan Adams is the brother of Zachary Rye Adams, who faces Felony Murder and Aggravated Kidnapping charges in connection to Bobo’s death. 

On Wednesday evening, TBI Agents arrested the 26-year-old Decatur County man without incident and charged him with one count of Tampering with Evidence. He was booked into the Madison County Jail, where at the time of this release, he was being held without bond.

Maury Regional Receives Chest Pain Center Accreditation

COLUMBIA, TN — Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) received full Chest Pain Center Accreditation with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC) on September 7. 

This recent three-year accreditation is the highest level of chest pain certification awarded by SCPC. In order to receive accreditation, MRMC demonstrated its expertise and commitment to quality patient care by meeting or exceeding a wide set of stringent criteria and undergoing an onsite review by a team of accreditation specialists. MRMC has been an accredited chest pain center since 2008. 

Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the United States, with 600,000 people dying annually of heart disease. More than five million Americans visit hospitals each year with chest pain. SCPC’s goal is to significantly reduce the mortality rate of these patients by teaching the public to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a possible heart attack, reduce the time that it takes to receive treatment, and increase the accuracy and effectiveness of treatment. Anyone experiencing the signs and symptoms of a heart attack should call 911 immediately. Signs include: 

  • Chest discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back, which can feel like an uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain
  • Discomfort in other parts of the upper body, one or both arms, neck, jaw, upper back or stomach
  • Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or light-headedness 

SCPC’s accreditation process ensures that centers meet or exceed quality-of-care measures in acute cardiac medicine. Key areas in which an Accredited Chest Pain Center must demonstrate expertise include the following: 

  • Integrating the emergency department with the local emergency medical system
  • Assessing, diagnosing, and treating patients quickly
  • Effectively treating patients with low risk for acute coronary syndrome and no assignable cause for their symptoms
  • Continually seeking to improve processes and procedures
  • Ensuring the competence and training of Accredited Chest Pain Center personnel
  • Maintaining organizational structure and commitment
  • Having a functional design that promotes optimal patient care
  • Supporting community outreach programs that educate the public to promptly seek medical care if they display symptoms of a possible heart attack

Scam Phone Calls Continue; IRS Identifies Five Easy Ways to Spot Suspicious Calls
IR-2014-84, Aug. 28, 2014
 
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service issued a consumer alert today providing taxpayers with additional tips to protect themselves from telephone scam artists calling and pretending to be with the IRS.
 
These callers may demand money or may say you have a refund due and try to trick you into sharing private information. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They may know a lot about you, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. If you don’t answer, they often leave an “urgent” callback request.
 
“These telephone scams are being seen in every part of the country, and we urge people not to be deceived by these threatening phone calls,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said. “We have formal processes in place for people with tax issues. The IRS respects taxpayer rights, and these angry, shake-down calls are not how we do business.”
 
The IRS reminds people that they can know pretty easily when a supposed IRS caller is a fake. Here are five things the scammers often do but the IRS will not do. Any one of these five things is a tell-tale sign of a scam. The IRS will never:
 
1. Call you about taxes you owe without first mailing you an official notice.
2. Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
3. Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
4. Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
5. Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
 
If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here’s what you should do:
 
  • If you know you owe taxes or think you might owe, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. The IRS workers can help you with a payment issue.
 
  • If you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to believe that you do, report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1.800.366.4484 or at www.tigta.gov.
 
  • If you’ve been targeted by this scam, also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their “FTC Complaint Assistant” at FTC.gov. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments of your complaint.
 
Remember, too, the IRS does not use email, text messages or any social media to discuss your personal tax issue. For more information on reporting tax scams, go to www.irs.gov and type “scam” in the search box.
 
Additional information about tax scams are available on IRS social media sites, including YouTube http://youtu.be/UHlxTX4rTRU?list=PL2A3E7A9BD8A8D41D. and Tumblr http://internalrevenueservice.tumblr.com where people can search “scam” to find all the scam-related posts.
 
Maury Regional Reports The Dangers of Sepsis During Sepsis Awareness Month

Know the Facts. Save a Life.  

COLUMBIA, TN — Sepsis, better known to most as blood poisoning or septicemia, is a toxic response to an infection. Even the most minor infection may lead to the body developing sepsis and this life-threatening condition can affect anyone at any age. 

More than 750,000 Americans are affected by sepsis, with more than 258,000 dying annually. Sepsis takes more lives in the United States than breast, lung and prostate cancer combined. 

In addition to its death toll, sepsis can also result in life-changing consequences to its survivors. Amputated limbs, failing organs and psychological issues are among the outcomes. Particularly at risk for sepsis are infants, seniors and those with diseases that compromise the immune system, such as cancer. There is no single sign or symptom of sepsis; however, warning signs may include one or more of the following: 

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Pain
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion
  • Sleepiness 

Anyone experiencing symptoms should seek immediate treatment. Timely antibiotics and fluids have been shown to significantly decrease the risk of death from sepsis. Tell your physician or nurse about any cuts or infections, and ask about your risk for sepsis. 

Physicians work to diagnose sepsis based on an exam that includes temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate and lab tests for signs of infection. People with sepsis must receive antibiotics and intravenous fluids as quickly as possible. Antibiotics fight the infection while the fluids help to make sure enough blood and oxygen get to your cells and tissues. 

While the exact cause of sepsis is unknown, limiting your exposure to infections can also limit your risk of developing sepsis. Health care providers suggest washing your hands thoroughly and frequently, keeping wounds clean to avoid infection and obtaining immunizations against illnesses, including influenza and pneumonia.
