Kenneth Barlowe, a former Trezevant man, now of Springville, died Aug. 10 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville after being allegedly assaulted on Aug. 4 on Highway 218 Bypass that goes around Paris. He had previously farmed in the Trezevant area.

Services for Barlowe, 73, were held Aug. 16 at 2 p.m. at Trezevant Church of Christ.

According to an incident report by Cpl. Forrest Kemp of the Henry County Sheriff’s Department, an altercation between Barlowe and a truck driver began when a piece of gravel flew from the truck and broke Barlowe’s windshield.

Barlow forced the driver to pull over and demanded that he was owed a new windshield. The suspect responded by kicking Barlowe in the face and knocking him to the ground and then leaving the scene.

Barlow reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Department before being airlifted to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.

It is believed that he suffered bleeding of the brain, probably caused by the impact from hitting the ground. No charges have been filed in the incident at this time.

Henry County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Adam Jenkins said Monday the investigation is ongoing and that a news release would be given to media outlets when the matter was resolved.
