Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom

On 6 January 2007, Knoxville, Tennessee,
residents Christopher Newsom, Jr., 23, and
Channon Christian, 21, went out for a dinner
date at a local restaurant, then headed to a
friend's house to watch a movie. They never
came back.
When the couple had failed to return by the
following morning, their parents notified police.
Christopher Newsom's body was found near
some railroad tracks in East Knoxville that
afternoon, but Channon Christian remained
missing. A trace run on Christian's cell phone
helped authorities locate her abandoned vehicle
the next day, and fingerprints raised from an
envelope inside the
automobile led police
to the residence of
25-year-old Lemaricus
Devall "Slim"
Davidson, where they
discovered Christian's
body stashed inside a
trash disposal bin and
covered with sheets.
The details of the crime
as later revealed by
court testimony were
horrific: Christopher
Newsom was
repeatedly sodomized
with a foreign object;
he was bound, gagged
and blindfolded; he was
dragged outside and shot
in the back of his head,
neck and back; and his
body was set on fire.
Channon Christian was
tortured for several hours,
beaten about the head, and raped; afterwards,
bleach was poured over her body and down
her throat, then she was covered with several
plastic garbage bags, dumped in a disposal bin,
and left to suffocate.
