WKRN Reporter Helps Catch Accused Rapist

By Kevin Eck 

WKRN reporter Jessica Jaglois is credited with helping police catch an accused rapist.

Jaglois, a reporter for the Nashville ABC affiliate, spotted the suspect, Jason Williams, running through backyards while she was covering the manhunt for him. She called 9-1-1 after a local homeowner also called police when she saw Williams hiding under her house.

“My name is Jessica Jaglois,” reports Jaglois told police. “We just spotted the alleged rapist y’all are looking for back on Kinsley. He just ran through a backyard.”


Williams has been charged with aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.
