THREE ARRESTED IN CONNECTION TO DEATH OF CROSSVILLE MAN

A joint investigation by special agents with the Drug Investigation Division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department has resulted in the indictment and arrest of three individuals, following the drug-related death of a Crossville man.

In July 2022, a detective with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department responded to the death of Christopher Hale. It was ultimately determined the victim died of the combined toxic effects of fentanyl and ethanol, and TBI drug agents joined the investigation. During that investigation, agents and detectives developed information that identified a Crossville man as the individual who provided the drugs to the victim, and two others who provided the drugs to that man.

On January 8, 2024, the Cumberland County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Michael Daignault, Jerrica Hayes, and Frazier Norris.

Hayes and Norris were arrested on January 10, 2024.

Daignault was arrested in North Carolina and extradited to Tennessee on January 23, 2024.

All three were booked into the Cumberland County Jail:

Michael R. Daignault, age 61, is charged with the manufacture or sale of Schedule II fentanyl, manufacture or delivery of Schedule II fentanyl, and second-degree murder.

Jerrica Marie Hayes, age 35, is charged with four counts of manufacture, delivery, or sale of Schedule II Controlled Substance Fentanyl.

Frazier Norris, age 77, is charged with four counts of manufacture, delivery, or sale of Schedule II Controlled Substance Fentanyl.
