A woman from out of state has been charged with second-degree murder in Cumberland County.
The New York State Police and the City of Middletown Police Department took 59-year-old Diana Lynn Grosso of Otisville, New York into custody on a fugitive from justice warrant from the State of Tennessee.
An extradition warrant was issued by the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department. Grosso was remanded to the Orange County, New York Correctional Facility to await extradition back to Tennessee.
Late Sunday night, officers transported Grosso to the Crossville jail. She was booked and initially placed under a $200,000 bond.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation released details yesterday surrounding the arrest of Grosso for second-degree murder in Cumberland County.
On Monday afternoon, the TBI said the case is in in connection to the 2018 drug-related death of Crossville resident Julia Meade.
In February 2019, the TBI joined detectives in investigating the July 2018 death of 58-year-old Julia Meade in her Crossville home. During the course of the investigation, officers learned the victim had been in New York on or around July 11, 2018, and acquired drugs, which she brought back to Tennessee.
On July 13, 2018, Meade was found deceased from what the investigation revealed was fentanyl toxicity. The investigation identified Grosso as the individual responsible for providing the substance containing fentanyl to the victim.
