Paris, Tenn., police officer charged in son’s death

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says special agents arrested and charged a police officer from the Paris, Tennessee, Police Department Thursday in connection to the death of his infant son.

The TBI says on Sept. 2 special agents began investigating the cause of life-threatening injuries sustained by a nearly 3-month-old child, Gunner Page, at his family’s home in Puryear. The baby died as a result of his injuries on Sept. 7.

During the investigation, the TBI says agents found information leading them to conclude the boy’s father, Paris police officer Christopher Warren Page, was responsible for his death. 

Agents arrested Page Thursday and charged him with a count of first degree murder and a count of aggravated child abuse. Page was initially jailed in Henry County Jail. He is, as of the last report, being held without bond in the Carroll County Jail. The TBI says the investigation continues with help from the Henry County Sheriff’s Office.
