On March 6th, according to Hannah Vanwuyckhuyse, her 2014 blue Honda Civic was stolen from 313 Duke Street. At the time of the report, Hannah informed the police that she left her keys inside of the car and her security camera did not capture the theft. The victim’s vehicle was then entered into NCIC as a stolen vehicle. On March 14th, the vehicle was discovered near 622 Dry Creek Road in Goodlettsville. At the time of the recovery, the car was abandoned. The same vehicle was suspected to be used in a fatal shooting that took place the previous day. Due to that incident, the vehicle was towed to the crime lab unit for further testing. On April 3rd, a fingerprint and a blue Gatorade bottle were found inside the vehicle. The fingerprint and Gatorade bottle were later discovered to belong to Elijah Parkerson.
