KCSO and BCSO Arrest Man for 2015 Homicide

Friday, 28 April 2017
A Maryville man was arrested yesterday for the July 2015 homicide of 42-year-old Kelly S. Cozart. Criminal Warrants officers with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office and the Blount County Sheriff’s Office (both U.S. Marshals Service-led Smoky Mountains Fugitive Task Force members) took 52-year-old Ryan Monroe Allen into custody on Thursday at a home in Blount County. The arrest came after an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, and the Knoxville Police Department led to indictments charging Allen with first degree murder and abuse of a corpse.
Allen is being held in the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility on a $1,000,000 bond. He has a criminal history in Knox County that includes possession of drug paraphernalia, public order crimes, and dangerous drugs.
