Anna Primavere found dead in Tennessee
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The body of Anna Primavere was found Wednesday inside the trunk of a suspect’s vehicle in Lebanon, Tennessee.
The nationwide manhunt has begun for a suspect in the case, identified as 27-year-old Courtney Dawn Gibson, who was last seen in Lebanon, Tennessee on Sunday, Feb. 23.
Primavere, 36, from Titusville, went missing last Friday and sparked a nationwide search for her
Sadly, the search for Primavere came to an end on Wednesday as her body was discovered by law enforcement in Lebanon, Tennessee after a search warrant was obtained with evidence presented by Titusville Police.
Investigators were able to positively identify the body as that of Primavere.
Police say they have discovered that Gibson was a babysitter hired by the landlord at the house on 4005 Trinidad Avenue to care for his child.
Gibson was captured on a Ring doorbell video driving away from the area of Trinidad Avenue early Saturday morning with a mattress on the roof of her car, a Red Kia Forte.
Investigators say that mattress fell off her car, where Gibson then burned it on the side of the road.
The victim’s mattress was missing when the police initially searched the home after the family reported her missing, according to detectives.
Meanwhile, police in Tennessee were able to locate Gibson at her parent’s home Sunday, where she then refused to cooperate with police and would not let them search her vehicle.
Titusville detectives then began working in partnership with Lebanon Police on obtaining a search warrant for the vehicle, which was obtained Wednesday.
“We believe the victim was likely killed in a violent manner in the home between 7 p.m. and midnight on Friday, February 21,” said Investigations Lieutenant Chris Deloach.
“Sadly, for everyone involved, this has ended in the worst-case scenario.”
Titusville detectives are en-route to Tennessee tonight to meet with officials.
