“Terry Britt has been alleged that he would go out and pick up girls and ladies and then take them somewhere,” said John Mehr, Special Agent in Charge, TBI. Agent Mehr said Britt is accused of picking up the women in vans, similar to the ones found outside his house in Parsons, and officers said he did not always work alone. “We don’t feel that this is an isolated incident, that he would drive around with another individual and possibly seek out their victims,” Mehr said. Investigators said Britt has a violent criminal record in at least four Tennessee counties, and even in North Carolina. Investigators do believe there could be other victims.
