Murder Victim Was Daughter Of Indiana Deputy

More details are emerging about 20-year old Allison Tenbarge, of Evansville, who was found dead in a Clarksville apartment early Wednesday morning. According to WEVV-TV, in Evansville, Tenbarge is the daughter of Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Lieutenant Kenneth Tenbarge. Allison was found dead around 2:30 Wednesday morning when Clarksville Police were called to do a welfare check at Quintin Bird's apartment in the 100 block of Fairview Lane.

Kentucky State Police found Bird, a former Trigg County resident, nearly 12 hours later after his abandoned vehicle was found near Kuttawa. He was located in a camper at the Rocky Ridge RV Park on Lake Barkley by troopers and Lyon County Sheriff's deputies. He was transported to Caldwell Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries he suffered before he was arrested. Bird was released from the hospital and lodged in the Christian County Jail and charged with 2nd Degree Burglary and Tampering with Physical Evidence.

Clarksville Police Department Public Information Officer Jim Knoll tells the News Edge Bird will face Criminal Homicide charges in Tennessee. He also said there were signs of a struggle in the apartment, but did not release any other details. He indicates detectives are still interviewing witnesses, and he doesn't know whether Bird has been questioned at the Christian County Jail or if detectives are waiting until he's back in Clarksville. However, Knoll says Bird will appear in court in Kentucky first before the extradition. He says Allison's body was sent to Nashville for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
