The following WBBJ crime news video is about the shooting death of Todd Daniel Laatsch. He was shot and killed in Carroll County, Tennessee. The incident took place on Wednesday, December 19, 2012. It was about 3 in the afternoon.
Todd Daniel Laatsch was 50 years old. It is not clear from the report where he lived or what connection he has to the home where the crime took place.
Laatsch was found shot in the driveway of a home. The location is in the 1100 block of Barren Springs Church Road.
While police say they believe they know who shot and killed Laatsch, they are not releasing the name of that alleged shooter at this time.
Police are not really sharing the motive, either. They do say there was an argument earlier at that same house, but that Laatsch was not involved in that argument. Rather than making a direct arrest, they say they will first present the evidence to the district attorney. This sounds like there is some substantial defense to the homicide. But what that defense is has not been shared with the public.
