On August 7, 2004, an anonymous call brought Nashville police to 2728 Mossdale Drive, where they found the home’s owner, 43-year old Johnny Michael Allen, dead in his bed. He’d been shot once in the back of the head. A tip led police to Room 302 at the InTown Suites, where they arrested 16-year old Cyntoia Denise Brown. Initially, Brown gave police a fake name and claimed to be 19-years old. Brown was a runaway from Clarksville, Tennesse. While in Nashville, she’d been living with 24-year old Gary McGlothen, who went by the nicknames “Cut” or “Cut Throat.” During questioning, Brown admitted shooting Johnny, but claimed self-defense, which was refuted by the crime scene and the evidence that Brown took guns, money, paper work and Johnny’s truck after shooting him in the head. Her initial efforts to blame others were unsuccessful and she was charged with first degree murder, felony murder and aggravated robbery. Join Lisa O’Brien and Michael Carnahan on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. Central for Episode 10, State of Tennessee v. Cyntoia Brown. We’ll talk about the evidence linking Brown to the murder of Johnny Michael Allen and the propaganda campaign waged in 2019, which resulted in a grant of clemency by Bill Haslam, Tennessee’s governor and release from prison 15 years into a life sentence. We are a live show and, as always, calls are welcome at (347) 989-1171.
