Students to produce video on unsolved murder case




With the hope of bringing in the information needed to catch a killer, this summer local residents could see a video about a double murder in Franklin when they flip on the TV or head out to catch a movie.

Franklin police and local high school students are making a short video about the case drawn from interviews with family members and investigators about the unsolved murders of Blake and Chynna Dickus.

Police try to remind residents about the gruesome double murder at least once a year. The case also has been featured on billboards and prison playing cards.

Blake Dickus, 10, and his stepmother, Chynna Dickus, 26, were killed on July 24, 2006, in their home in the Branigin Woods subdivision near the high school. Both were stabbed multiple times. Blake Dickus also died from blunt force trauma and asphyxia, according to autopsy reports.
