LeAnne Peace

Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation alongside investigators from the Savannah Police Department have arrested a Savannah woman in connection with the death of her father.
On Oct. 18, at the request of 24th District Attorney General Matt Stowe, TBI agents joined investigators with the Savannah Police Department in responding to a home in the 200 block of Pleasant Street in Savannah where human remains were found. LeAnne Peace, 54, had rented the house and reportedly lived there with her father Jack Peace (DOB: 9/19/39). A search to locate Jack Peace was unsuccessful and it was later determined he had died on an unknown date.
During the course of the investigation, authorities developed information leading to LeAnne Peace as the person responsible for her father’s death as well as other alleged crimes. Peace was arrested in Fulton, Ky. Oct. 28 on a charge of Aggravated Animal Abuse and was returned to Savannah and booked into the Hardin County Jail.
During her Nov. 5 arraignment in Hardin County General Sessions Court, Peace was charged with additional counts of First Degree Murder, Aggravated Elder Abuse, and Abuse of a Corpse. She is scheduled to appear before the Hardin County General Sessions Court on Dec. 10. Her bond is set at $1 million.
