Tennessee deputy Savanna Puckett found dead in burning home

NASHVILLE — A man was arrested in connection with the death of a Tennessee sheriff deputy who was found dead inside her burning home.

A Robertson County Sheriff deputy went to check on fellow deputy Savanna Puckett at her home in Springfield, Tennessee Sunday night, around 20 miles north of Nashville, after she did not report for her shift. The officer found her home engulfed in flames, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. The deputy was not able to make it inside due to the extent of the fire.

Once firefighters arrived, they found Puckett dead inside with a gunshot wound, the release said. She was 22.

Officials said on late Monday morning a man was arrested in connection with the death of Puckett after an hours-long standoff in Smyrna, around 15 miles southeast of Nashville. 

The standoff ended around 11:30 a.m. CT Monday, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation reported. 

“The investigation remains active and ongoing, and we’ll provide more details as soon as we’re able to do so,” TBI said in a tweet.
