    On January 30, 2003, Tyrone Tackett who resides at 114 Secretariat Place in Hendersonville, Sumner County, Tennessee, reported that his wife, Salena Tackett was missing. She had left the couple’s upscale home in the Bluegrass Downs subdivision with a large sum of money. The two had one young child together and Salena had a young son who was not living with her at the time. An extensive investigation was done without any success in locating Ms. Tackett. Tyrone and Salena had been married for one week when she disappeared. According to officials and neighbors the couple's relationship was sometimes turbulent. Tyrone Tackett moved out of the area with the couple’s daughter soon after his wife’s disappearance.

    Tyrone N. Tackett was arrested on July 13, 2011 and charged with solicitation to commit murder. A Sumner County grand jury returned an indictment charging former Hendersonville resident, Tyrone Tackett, with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Salena Tackett.

    Tenn. man accepts plea deal in wife’s disappearance

    By Eddie Daniels | Tribune Staff
    Published: March 27, 2014

    A Tennessee man arrested four years ago in Pasco County on murder charges for the 2003 disappearance of his wife, pleaded guilty Monday to a lesser charge in a Tennessee court, according to a media report.

    Tyrone N. Tackett, 42, who was arrested July 13, 2011, at a home in Dade City, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter Monday in a Sumner County, Tenn., courtroom, The Tennessean reported.

    Tackett refused to admit he had anything to do with his wife’s disappearance when he accepted the plea deal. He was sentenced to a five-year prison term.

    Due to the amount of time he has been in custody, nearly four years, and because only 30 percent of his sentence must be served, Tackett will be released April 15 and will serve a two-year supervised probation, according to The Tennessean.

    Tackett was arrested by members of the Hendersonville (Tenn.) Police Department with assistance from Pasco County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Florida Department of Law Enforcement members.

    Tackett was originally charged with first-degree murder and solicitation to commit murder after authorities said he hired someone to kill his wife, Salena.

    Salena Tackett, who was 25 at the time of her disappearance, was reported missing on Jan. 31, 2003, by her husband. He told authorities she left the Hendersonville home she shared with her husband and their then-3-year-old daughter with at least $60,000 missing from the safe.

    The solicitation charge was dropped because of an eight-year statute of limitations.

    In a video posted on the paper’s website, Tackett said he pleaded guilty because it was in his best interest to do so. When Judge Paul G. Summers asked if he was giving a no contest plea to the charges, Tackett contended he was not guilty of killing his wife despite accepting the deal.

    “What it means to me, your honor, is that I’m not guilty,” Tackett said in the video. “That I pled that I’m guilty and it’s in my in my best interest to plead that I’m guilty. But I don’t agree to the facts that the state claims.”

    A short time after the disappearance, Tackett left Tennessee for Florida, with the couple’s daughter. He was arrested less than a week later in Dade City and just three days after a grand jury indictment for first-degree murder.

    Pasco man, suspected of hiring a contract killer, arrested in 2003 disappearance of wife
    • By Jamie Klein, Times Staff Writer
    Thursday, July 14, 2011 9:06pm

    Tyrone Tackett had twice stranded his fiancee on their wedding day before they finally exchanged vows in January 2003. They lived in a home in Bluegrass Downs, an exclusive subdivision northeast of Nashville, for one week as newlyweds.


    Then Salena Tackett disappeared.

    Tyrone Tackett told authorities his wife left with a large sum of money, but friends never believed Salena, 25, would willfully abandon the couple's young daughter, Grace.

    Salena never turned up, and police suspected foul play. But the case went cold for more than eight years — until new leads brought Tennessee police officers to Dade City this week to arrest Tyrone Tackett.

    Tackett, 39, is accused of trying to arrange his wife's murder. He was arrested about 9 a.m. Wednesday at his home at 17932 Lake Iola Drive and taken to the Land O'Lakes jail. He is being held without bail on a charge of solicitation to commit murder.

    Authorities plan to bring him back to Tennessee today or Saturday.

    "It was there and we don't give up," said Mickey Miller, the police chief in Hendersonville, Tenn. "The detectives had worked on it for several years and decided to sit down take a look at it and started working with the District Attorney's office to get it ready."

    The Hendersonville Police Department renewed its efforts to solve Salena Tackett's disappearance in January, when Miller became chief. A billboard was erected near land owned by Tyrone Tackett's family in Bowling Green, Ky., and local police there started a tip line.

    Miller declined Thursday to provide any details on what they believe happened to Salena, or what break in the case led to Tackett's arrest. But a relative named Brian Tackett filed a lawsuit in 2004 in Mississippi offering this version of events:

    Brian Tackett alleged Tyrone Tackett and others stole numerous pieces of construction equipment from him and made money using it on various projects — a practice that allegedly continued after Salena's 2003 disappearance, with the cleanup of Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

    Not only did Salena know about the illegal activity, the lawsuit alleged, she was the bookkeeper for Tyrone Tackett and could not be trusted to stay quiet.

    "Salena possessed information about (Tyrone Tackett's) racketeering activities because she was not only the girlfriend of Tyrone Tackett, and mother of his child, but also a bookkeeper in the enterprise," the lawsuit alleged. "When she could no longer be controlled by Tyrone, he propagated false rumors that she was a drug addict to discredit her. When that alone was still insufficient, he contracted to kill her."

    The lawsuit alleged Tyrone Tackett planned to hire a man to kill Salena and make it look like a robbery. The lawsuit then claims Tyrone Tackett killed Salena himself.

    The Mississippi lawsuit was dismissed in 2005 due to procedural issues. Brian Tackett could not be reached for this story.

    Kay Russell, who lived next door to Tyrone and Salena Tackett on Secretariat Place, said Salena was like a daughter to her. She remembered Tackett as a man who was eager to fit in.

    "He wants to be part of the group, but then there's another side," Russell said, alluding to the couple's frequent arguments.

    Russell remembered watching Tackett and Salena argue on the back porch, which was about 100 feet from her own. A few days after that last fight, Russell said, Tackett reported his wife missing.

    "My first reaction was that she would never have left Grace in that house," Russell said. "Something was wrong. She wouldn't leave her baby, period."

    Russell said Tackett shunned the neighbors after Salena's disappearance, and moved away shortly afterward. He left with the couple's young daughter and, according to the Mississippi lawsuit, a then-15-year-old girl named Holly Ann Duncan.

    Pasco County property records show that in 2009, Duncan, now an adult, bought the 17-acre tract at Lake Iola Drive and Blanton Road where Tackett was arrested this week. Another relative, Grayson Tackett, is listed as a co-owner.

    Russell, 53, was pleased to hear about Tyrone Tackett's arrest on Thursday.

    "We were thrilled that (Salena) might be able to get some kind of peace," Russell said. "She's not a number. She's a person. She has a lot of family and friends and touched all of our lives."

    Russell said she doesn't have much hope that Salena is still alive — especially when she missed Grace's birthday the year after her disappearance.

    "That was a really sad day for us because we knew she would show up. If it was in her power, she would have."

    Times researcher Shirl Kennedy contributed to this report.



    This article has been revised to reflect the following clarification: A 2004 lawsuit alleged Salena Tackett was killed because she knew about her husband, Tyrone Tackett, stealing construction equipment and using it to make money on various jobs — a practice that allegedly continued after her 2003 disappearance, when the equipment was used to clean up after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The original version of this story was unclear on that timeline of events.

    Tackett pleads to manslaughter, out of jail in 3 weeks
    Tena Lee, tlee@mtcngroup.comPublished 1:53 p.m. CT March 24, 2014

    [​IMG]

    A former Hendersonville resident charged with first-degree murder in his wife's 2003 disappearance pleaded guilty to a lesser charge Monday — the same day his jury trial was supposed to begin in Sumner County Criminal Court.

    Tyrone Tackett, 42, entered a best-interest plea of voluntary manslaughter before Senior Judge Paul G. Summers. As part of the best-interest plea, Tackett did not admit guilt in the case but agreed to a five-year prison sentence to be served at 30 percent. Factoring in time Tackett has already served in the Sumner County Jail since July 2011 awaiting trial, he will be released April 15. At that time he'll begin a two-year supervised probation.

    Tackett had also been charged with solicitation to commit murder for allegedly hiring someone to kill Salena Tackett weeks before police say he actually killed her himself. That charge was dismissed March 20 due to an eight-year statute of limitations.

    Tackett reported Salena, then 25, missing to police on Jan. 31, 2003, telling them she left a day earlier, and that more than $60,000 was missing from a safe in the couple's home in the upscale Bluegrass Downs subdivision. The two had been married for a week, and had a child together.

    Tyrone Tackett entered a best interest plea of manslaughter March 24 in Sumner County Criminal Court. He had been charged with first degree murder in the 2003 disappearance of Salena Tackett.

    Shortly after his wife disappeared, Tyrone Tackett left Hendersonville with the couple's 3-year-old daughter.

    After a Sumner County grand jury indicted him on July 8, 2011, on the solicitation to commit murder charge, he was arrested in Pasco County, Fla., five days later. In December of the same year, a separate grand jury indicted him on the first-degree murder charge.

    Evidence in both indictments has not been made public, and Salena Tackett's body has never been found.

    A 'volatile relationship'

    Assistant District Attorney Ron Blanton said prosecutors would have shown the two had a volatile relationship that included at least 11 calls to police. While working as a bookkeeper for Tackett's construction business, Blanton said, Salena discovered her husband was involved in illegal


    activity and threatened to tell police. Blanton also said as soon as the two married, Salena told several people she had made a mistake. The two had a heated argument on Jan. 30, and Salena was about to ask for an annulment, he said.

    "No one has ever heard from her since that day and her body was never located. That would have been the state's proof," Blanton said at Tackett's plea hearing.

    Tackett's attorney Peter Strianse said he would have vigorously disputed those facts had the case gone to trial. He said Tackett doesn't contest that his wife disappeared, but that he is unwilling to admit that he participated in her disappearance.


    Dressed in blue jeans and a khaki shirt, Tackett maintained his innocence even when pleading guilty.

    When asked by Summers if he was ready to enter his guilty plea, he replied, "I plead that it's in my best interest to plead guilty."

    There were just a few people in the courtroom, including Tyrone Tackett's mother and a handful of friends. No one from Salena Tackett's family attended the hearing.

    "This court is satisfied that both the defense and the prosecution have worked diligently in preparing their case," said Summers, who was appointed special judge following the recusal in October of Criminal Court Judge Dee David Gay. Gay had advised Hendersonville police officers on the case while he was an assistant district attorney.

    "I realize that there will be a lot of second-guessing in this," Summers said. "But I can tell you that emotions and second-guessing do not take the place of solid proof beyond a reasonable doubt."

    Without a body, trial was a gamble

    Police and prosecutors could not hide their disappointment.

    "It's not what we anticipated even as recent as two weeks ago," said Hendersonville Police Detective Sgt. Jim Vaughn.

    Vaughn said the dismissal of the solicitation charge last week, "struck a huge blow to the case."

    "Obviously we would have liked to have a harsher sentence, but you have to evaluate a case as you go along," said Sumner County District Attorney General Ray Whitley.

    Whitley said prosecutors were taking a chance by going to trial without a body, "nobody that saw a body and nobody that saw a crime."

    "We didn't want to take a chance on Tyrone Tackett walking out and not being held responsible for this crime," Whitley said.
