Funeral 1 pm Wednesday for victim in potential homicide investigation

A funeral is scheduled Wednesday for the woman whose body was found last week in her apartment in what is being called a potential homicide investigation. On Friday, Dickson police said the body had been positively identified as 51-year-old Cynthia Darlene Green, but released no other details about the ongoing investigation. Green’s body was found around noon Tuesday in her apartment in the 800 block of East Railroad Street near the Dickson County Fairgrounds. Visitation with Green’s family is 2-8 pm today, 10 am-8 pm Tuesday and 10 am until the service Wednesday at Dickson Funeral Home. A funeral service will be 1 pm Wednesday from the chapel of Dickson Funeral Home with Sister Buena Lampley officiating. Burial will be in the Richardson Cemetery in Burns. A Dickson County native, Ms. Green is survived by her father, Gerald Browning of McEwen; step-father, James Banks of Bon Aqua; four daughters, Amanda Griffen, Angel Garcia, Christina Griffen and Cecilia Browning; three brothers, Gerald Browning, Clifton Browning and James Weaver; a sister, Renea White; and 14 grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her mother, Myrna Cathey Weaver. Arrangements for Ms. Green are under the direction of Dickson Funeral Home. Dickson Police Department Criminal Investigations Division Commander Eddie Breeden said Friday that Green’s death continues to be investigated as a potential homicide but would not comment on any other details of the investigation. An autopsy was conducted by the state medical examiner’s office to determine a cause of death but Breeden would not say what the results are. “We are actively and aggressively pursuing the case,” Breeden said. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is assisting.
