Caleb Cannon Guilty In The Death Of Nikki Burgess


A Nashville jury has found Caleb Cannon guilty of the first-degree pre-meditated murder of his ex-girlfriendĀ Nikki Burgess, the mother of Cannon’s child. Burgess disappeared about three years ago, and her body was never found.

Despite not having a body, authorities believe that Cannon killed Burgess, and prosecutors claim that Cannon confessed the crime to his former cell mate, admitting to beating and strangling her, before hiding her body.
