Michael Cummins, a Tennessee suspect accused of seven homicides in the small town of Westmoreland, is now being prosecuted for allegedly killing an eighth person whose headless body was discovered by authorities last month.

Cummins has been charged in the death of James Fox Dunn Jr., a Nashville-area man who was found dead on April 17, said Sumner County District Attorney Ray Whitley.

Whitley said Dunn's headless body was discovered at a burned cabin outside of Westmoreland and his head was located nearby. Whitley said it is unknown if Dunn was decapitated during the killing or if it was separated by decomposition or another method.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agents are continuing to investigate the murder of five people in Sumner County on Saturday.

The killing is being investigated separately and independently from the previously discovered homicides. It is unclear how authorities have implicated Cummins in Dunn's death.

Dunn, 63, was born in Starkville, Mississippi, but grew up in Nashville, where he lived most of his life, according to an obituary published by Austin Funeral & Cremation Services. The obituary states that Dunn “loved animals and the outdoors which is where he felt most at home.”

Background: Westmoreland was a sleepy Tennessee town. Then horror came.

When asked if Dunn's death was linked to the other killings, Whitley said he could only confirm the homicides were connected by the suspect. Other Sumner County law enforcement officials did not respond to requests for comment on the case.

Cummins was arrested late last month after authorities found seven bodies at two homes on the outskirts of Westmoreland, a town of about 2,000 people in Sumner County. The bodies were discovered on the weekend of April 27, a full 10 days after Cummins allegedly killed Dunn.

The victims included several of Cummins' family members and a 12-year-old girl. Authorities have called the case one of the worst mass killings in state history.

Cummins was shot while attempting to evade police and then spent about two weeks in the hospital. He was released into Tennessee Bureau of Investigation custody on Friday, then officially charged with six counts of first-degree murder, one county of criminal homicide, one count of attempt to commit first-degree murder and one count of theft. Charges from the Dunn case are not currently known.

Headless body found in SF fish tank ruled a homicide, autopsy says

Headless body found in SF fish tank ruled a homicide, autopsy says A San Francisco man whose headless body was found decomposing in his South of Market home over the summer was violently killed before he was weighed down inside a fish tank full of chemicals, the city medical examiner’s office ruled. The autopsy report on 65-year-old Brian Egg’s death — released to The Chronicle this week, more than eight months after the gruesome discovery — will help answer at least one crucial question as prosecutors decide whether to file criminal charges: Was it murder? The dismembering and disposing of a body alone doesn’t necessarily prove a person was murdered, and could be charged as a misdemeanor, or not at all.
