I began following this story the day after the murders because Lori Ann (the mother in this story) was formerly cleaning the home of a friend of mine's sister and she also worked at a day-care owned by one of our family members. Once the story about the possible involvement of Jose' Sosa was made public, I learned that Lori Ann had notified authorities on SEVERAL occasions about the illegals living next door but could never get I.C.E. nor the metro police to intercede. Now, thanks to the in-action by both organizations, she and her daughter, are DEAD!

Three fingerprints link suspect to stabbing deaths, detective testifies

Three fingerprints link 16-year-old Jose Sosa to last month's stabbing deaths of Lori Ann and Adrian Rountree in south Nashville, police detectives testified on Friday.The mother and daughter were found dead in their Creekside Drive home on April 25. Sosa, who lived next door, was arrested Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. Police offered no motive for the killings during Friday's hearing and said there were no witnesses who had ever seen Sosa with the victims. "I kept asking if for any reason he had been inside the house, and he said, 'No,' " detective Marvin Rivera said. "He kept saying 'No.' "However, detective Wil Nesbitt testified that at least one of Sosa's fingerprints was found inside the home. Two more fingerprints, one of them bloody, were found on a back door, Nesbitt said. Lori Ann Rountree, 44, received about 37 wounds that punctured her stomach, heart, liver and major arteries. Adrian, 16, had about 46 wounds to the lungs and major arteries.Although there were signs of a struggle at the scene, police said they did not notice any wounds on Sosa on the day they found the bodies. Nesbitt also did not see any signs of a forced entry into the house, he said. Sosa was ordered to remain in juvenile detention until a June 23 hearing, when Assistant District Attorney Jeff Burks said he will ask to have Sosa tried as an adult. After Friday's hearing, Juan Sosa, the defendant's brother, raised his voice and began saying in Spanish that the police had no proof against his brother. Rivera told him to step outside the courtroom and then arrested him on a charge of disorderly conduct. Juan Sosa said in an interview on Thursday that his brother was with other people when the slaying occurred and could not have done it.
