NASHVILLE - This afternoon a minimum custody inmate under indirect supervision walked away from his assigned community service crew at Middle Tennessee Veterans Cemetery in Nashville.  The inmate, Quinton Stewart #308683, was being housed at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution and was serving 25 years for Second Degree Murder from Rutherford County.  He was set to expire his sentence in October 2019.

Officers patrolling the cemetery grounds noticed Stewart had absconded and appropriate procedures were implemented immediately.  TDOC’s Office of investigation and Compliance, working in concert with local law enforcement agencies, is investigating the matter.
