NASHVILLE – A multi-agency effort led to the capture Sunday of a man listed on the TBI’s “10 Most Wanted” list.

In recent weeks, the Maury County Sheriff’s Department developed information indicating Deterines Cortae Cathey, 24, of Columbia, was in Murfreesboro near Middle Tennessee State University.

On Sunday evening, Maury County deputies, along with FBI agents, Murfreesboro police officers and TBI special agents found and arrested Cathey without incident at 1310 N. Rutherford Blvd. in Murfreesboro.

Cathey was wanted by the FBI and TBI for several charges, including murder in aid of racketeering. In early April, a federal grand jury for Middle Tennessee indicted Cathey, who was also wanted in connection to a 2009 homicide in Columbia.

In December, U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force agents captured Cathey after he was on the most wanted list for his involvement in an October incident in Columbia. At that time, Columbia police charged him for various crimes, including aggravated assault.

Cathey was out on bond at the time of the recent federal indictments. Cathey was held Monday in the Maury County Jail.
