A Pulaski man who owns a Crestline Drive home that used to be rented by a man whose child was found dead Thursday is concerned public confusion could put his family at risk.
Ian Clayton said he purchased the home at 123 Crestline Drive about four months ago – about a month after the previous owner allegedly evicted Howard Samuel Cole. Cole was living in the 200 block of Crestline, not at 123 Crestline Drive, when five-month-old Cory Samuel Cole went missing.
“I’m concerned for my family,” Clayton said, noting that people have been driving by his home. He said he is afraid someone angry about the situation involving the baby’s death might mistakenly think Cole still lives there and retaliate against his family or property so he wishes to make it clear no one in the Cole family lives at that residence.
