August 15, 2014


A Joelton man sought for questioning as a suspect in the shooting death of his mother was found dead today inside his rented room at the Super 8 motel on Bell Road.
There were no indications of foul play in the death of Brian Keith Leeman, 48, who was found unresponsive by motel staff in the bathroom.  An autopsy will be conducted.
Leeman’s mother, Judy Moon, 68, was found dead August 6th on the floor of her 2833 Clay Lick Road home.  A friend asked police to conduct a welfare check after not hearing from Moon for several days. 
Leeman lived with Moon.  Inside his motel room were a cellphone belonging to Moon and her car keys.  However, Moon’s 2007 silver Ford Focus bearing Tennessee license plate number H5194G was not on the motel property or at neighboring businesses.  Efforts continue to locate the car.
