NASHVILLE – Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents have again added Deterines Cortae Cathey, of Columbia, to the state’s top 10 most wanted list.

Federal Bureau of Investigation and TBI agents said Cathey is now wanted for murder in the aid of racketeering.

Last week, a federal grand jury indicted Cathey in connection with a 2009 homicide that happened in Columbia.

In December, U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force agents arrested Cathey after he was on the most wanted list for his involvement in an October incident that happened in Columbia. Columbia police charged Cathey for various felony charges, which included aggravated assault. Currently, he is out on bond for those charges. The October incident is unrelated to the current charge from the FBI.

Cathey, also known as “Weeda,” 24, of Maury County, has a last known address of 130 Westview Drive in Columbia. He is described as an African American man with black hair and brown eyes. He is about 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds. He has a tattoo of “KC” on his left cheek and tattoos on both arms.

Cathey is a convicted felon and considered dangerous. He is a confirmed “Kitchen Crips” gang member.

Anyone with information on Cathey’s whereabouts is asked to call TBI at 800-TBI-FIND. Additionally, the FBI, Maury County Sheriff’s Office and Columbia Police Department will accept information from the public regarding Cathey’s whereabouts. There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
