Hannah Burrows in Murder Case
Bond set for Munford High Graduate | A $50,000 bond was set yesterday for Hannah Burrows, a 2018 Munford High graduate and former band member who has been charged with murder in Alabama.
Jesse Parker, her 31-year-old alleged accomplice who is also facing a murder charge, had his bond set at $100,000. As of 11 a.m. today Burrows, 18, and Parker were still incarcerated in the Lauderdale County Detention Center in Florence, Ala.
Devan Cobb, 23, was found shot to death at his apartment in Florence on June 22.
Florence Police Sgt. Greg Cobb held a press conference yesterday and said investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting yet.
“We’re trying to figure out what it was,” he said.
One reporter asked if an argument between the parties led to the shoooting.
“We don’t know if there was an argument,” Cobb said.
Cobb said investigators are waiting on subpoenas that have been submitted to get information from social media sites.
The victim’s car, a 2008 Suzuki Forenza, was found Tuesday in Memphis and is being processed for evidence, Cobb said.
Burrows and Parker were arrested at a Memphis hotel on June 25.
Florence officers said evidence found at the hotel where Burrows and Parker were staying will be “important to the case.”
Cobb, 23, was reported missing by family members early on June 22 and was found at 5 p.m.
Speaking about Burrows and Cobb, Florence Police Captain Brad Holmes said, “I believe there had been a connection made between the two previously.”
He also said evidence shows that Burrows and Parker were in the Florence area and “may have been staying with Mr. Cobb for several days.”
The Times Daily in Florence reported that, according to Holmes, Cobb met Burrows and Parker through social media because of a mutual interest in music.
A story posted by the ABC affiliate in Florence said Cobb was a former member of his high school band.
