Tom Roberson and his girlfriend Nancy Randolph, who died in an accident Monday on Center Hill Lake.
COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
DeKalb County deputies made an heroic effort to save Nancy Randolph, but it was in vain. They arrived minutes after the SUV she was driving crashed into Center Hill Lake last Monday.
Inside the car were Randolph's daughter, Sara and her daughter's boyfriend, Houston Bausell. The passengers made it safely to shore.
Now Randolph's boyfriend of two years, Tom Roberson, is raising questions about the circumstances surrounding Randolph's death. Roberson told Channel 4 News Randolph would never have attempted suicide.
"I don't know what woman they are talking about. That's not the Nancy we know. She was happy go-lucky, was excited about her life," said Roberson.
Roberson said he had loaned Randolph his Chevy Blazer that afternoon so Randolph could take her daughter to an appointment in Sparta. Roberson said Bausell wasn't supposed to be in the car. Roberson said Randolph didn't want her daughter to date Bausell. He claims the two had a physical confrontation.
"The last time I saw him, Nancy jerked him out of the car by his neck and wanted to hurt him. But she chose not to because it was my mother's front yard," said Roberson.
Most disturbing to Roberson were the bruise marks on Randolph's face after her body was identified by family. He says they were consistent to someone being struck.
"There was nothing wrong with the seat belt she was wearing, yet there is damage to her nose and a lot of bruising and bleeding. It would indicate to me someone struck her in the face," said Roberson.
The DeKalb County sheriff told Channel 4 News the investigation into Randolph's death is ongoing.
