The co-workers had requested a welfare check which prompted the officers to visit a home on Beechgrove Drive, Kentucky around 4 p.m. When the officers arrived, they were reportedly let in by a man named Tommy Joe Powell. Powell then allegedly admitted he had “killed the female inside.” At the scene of the crime, Harris was discovered in the bedroom dead due to a gunshot wound to the head. A neighbor of Powell also came forward to testify that Powell and Harris are dating and that she overheard them fighting during the weekend.
