Who is Justin Lynch
Cocke County authorities say a man brought to the local jail from North Carolina by bounty hunters over the weekend, apparently was the wrong man. Deputy Lt. David Moriarty said Justin Lynch, 24, was brought in from Brevard, North Carolina on a warrant charging him with failure to appear for a court hearing. But the subject insisted he was not the man that was wanted, saying he had never before been to Cocke County. Cocke County Jail Administrator Josh Hartsell began to research the situation and found that the previous booking photo of Lynch did not match the man who was brought in, and the description of tattoos also was different. In addition, the fingerprints associated with the original arrest matched a previous arrestee Matthew William Lucas, not Lynch. As a result, Lynch was released on his own recognizance and is to return to court in November as the investigation into the mixup continues.
