32-year-old Paige Hammonds was booked on an outstanding warrant from October 2010, when he raped a 14-year-old girl. The juvenile victim reported being at a party with her friend and losing track of her. She had asked two men who were at the party if they had seen her friend, to which they replied that they had and that she was in the upstairs bedroom. The juvenile walked upstairs to try to find her friend and was followed by two men, Ryan Roe and Jacobi Vaughn Moore. Once in the room, she discovered her friend wasn’t there, and Hammonds joined the men in the bedroom. During this time, the juvenile was held down and forcibly raped by all three men. After the incident, a rape kit was collected at Nashville General Hospital and submitted to the TBI’s crime lab. The lab report indicated the presence of male DNA, but the victim was fearful and unsure if she wanted to prosecute at that time.

On April 25th, 2022, the now adult victim contacted the Youth Services Division and spoke about her case. After proceeding with prosecution, a request was submitted to the TBI crime lab to have the unknown DNA recovered and cross-referenced with the national CODIS database. The results returned a match for Ryan Roe and Paige Hammonds, who were incarcerated at the time for unrelated crimes.
