Relative finds that a stranger has moved into a deceased man’s home

Lawrenceburg Now
Law enforcement officials were asked to open an investigation on Tuesday after a Columbia resident reported that a stranger, on furlough from the local jail, had moved into her deceased brother’s home uninvited.
The victim made contact with the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department, reporting that she had found Brian Keith Rummage living in her brother’s home. She said he claimed to be their cousin.
The victim told deputies that Rummage acted “sketchy” and that he had explained how he had been kicked out of rehab. She was adamant that there “was no way they were related.”
Deputies investigating the matter found that Rummage had been released on furlough from the Lawrence County Detention Center on March 29 so that he could take part in a rehabilitation program in Mobile, Alabama.
Authorities contacted Mission of Hope Ministries and learned that Rummage had checked in on March 29, but that he had been terminated on May 14 after he allegedly made verbal threats against one of his peers at the facility.
Deputies consulted authorities at the District Attorney’s office and, as a result, took out warrants, charging Rummage with failure to appear in court for violating the terms of his furlough. Maury County law enforcement officers accompanied deputies to the residence on Woods Drive on Tuesday. Rummage was returned to custody and transported back to the Lawrence County Jail.
