34-year-old Timothy Marlin was jailed Wednesday afternoon for threatening to rape his ex-girlfriend. Allie Mullins told police that she and Marlin used to be in a relationship and now has a restraining order against him. On July 27th, an unknown account on Instagram reached out to Allie’s sister with explicit photos of Allie. When Mullins was notified, she checked her messages on all social media platforms. She noticed multiple messages from various accounts. The usernames were “Corn Man,” “Bob Digglet,” and “TribCollector.” when Ms. Mullins asked the accounts who they were, they responded, “You do know where I get these pics from.” She asked one more time, and he told her that “Her cuck ex” had sent photos and had been sending them to hundreds of men online. The user confirmed, “Yes, Destery (Marlin’s nickname) sent those pics.”
The next day, Mr. Marlin contacted Ms. Mullins and started threatening that if she didn’t send current explicit photos of herself, he would get her family. When Ms. Mullins refused to send the explicit images, Marlin told her that he would rape and hurt her. She told officers that she was afraid of what he might do to her due to their past domestic history.
Timothy Marlin of Arthur Drive in Murfreesboro, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 15th, charged with order of protection violation, harassment, and domestic assault. He is free on a $4,500 bond.
