Police say 39 year old Jenkins who received two six-year suspended sentences just this past June for aggravated burglary and felony theft in separate incidents, was taken into custody today at the Sumner County Jail.
We're told police found blood on the scene that matched Jenkins'. Tuesday night, Hendersonville Police located evidence in Jenkins’ residence linking him to a residential burglary that occurred on November 5th. He was charged in Sumner County with aggravated burglary and felony theft. Jenkins’ bond on the Sumner County charges was set at $225,000.
West Precinct detectives submitted the DNA sample obtained by search warrant to the TBI crime laboratory Wednesday morning. The murder warrants were issued as a result of that analysis.
Patrick Sullivan, 56, his wife, Deborah Sullivan, 48, and their daughter, Wendy Sullivan, 26, are believed to have been attacked in the late morning hours of October 22nd. The Sullivan’s 28-year-old daughter found her mother and sister dead inside the house early that afternoon. Responding officers found Patrick Sullivan dead inside a detached building behind the house.
Officers tell us the motive for the murders is believed to be drug related. They say the investigation revealed that the Sullivans sold pills and marijuana from the Maxon Avenue residence.
In addition to his 2012 convictions, police say Jenkins was also convicted of robbery in January 2004 for grabbing a purse from a woman’s arm at 10th Avenue North & Charlotte Avenue as she walked from her workplace to her car. Jenkins confessed, saying that he took the purse because he needed money for drugs. He received a five-year suspended sentence in that case.
Anyone in the community with information about this case, or about Lorenzo Jenkins, his affiliations, or his activities on October 22nd, is urged to contact West Precinct Investigations at 862-7385 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
