The Judds Finally Make The News


martymartelChristmas2013bMarty Martel Comment: This morning’s Tennessean newspaper has the following story regarding Ashley Judd and her sister Wynonna.  I wonder if the girls know that their careers are over so now they are just trying to find ways to get in the news. After you read the article it makes you wonder how low they are going to stoop to get someone to write an article about them.  The article did not make front page news or even the following pages, it was in the local news section. Wynonna seems to look for trouble and trouble automatically finds Ashley. Where is Naomi in all of this turmoil.  I guess it must be news worthy cause I am writing about it, but it seems so childish that sisters cannot get along.  The information was leaked out to the media in November.  Ashley Judd thinks Wynonna placed a GPS on her vehicle.  That is a tracking device.  Are you kidding me, the girls are tracking each other.  Is this what we call a tight knit family??  Give it a break girls.

The article follows: Written by Brian Wilson The Tennessean

naomijuddLeipers’ Fork resident and actress Ashley Judd believes her sister, country music star Wynonna Judd, is responsible for placing a GPS tracking device on a car owned by the movie star, according to a Franklin Police Department report.

Ashley Judd, 45, told police that she suspected her elder sister of placing a tracking device on a silver Mini Cooper in early November as part of an ongoing custody dispute among the two and the driver of the car, whose name was redacted by police.

“It is believed that the device was placed there in order to track their movement,” said the report.

Dana McLendon, an attorney representing Wynonna Judd, declined to comment on the police documents.

Hours after details of the report became public, the country singer tweeted that she was homesick and posted a picture with the following quote: “Be thankful for all you have, because you never know what will happen next.”

Franklin police have declared the case inactive pending further leads. No charges have been filed from the incident.

On Nov. 8, Ashley Judd’s Mini Cooper was taken to the Quick Muffler repair shop in Franklin where a large plastic box was found on the car’s rear passenger side, according to a statement the mechanic Tim Goodson gave police.

Police found a cellular GPS tracking device in the box and determined it was registered to Janice Diane Swafford-Holt, a Nashville private investigator.

Det. Dawn Bennett contacted Swafford-Holt to get more details about the device.

After the detective talked with the private investigator, Wynonna Judd’s attorney called the detective and said the singer had hired the private investigator and had instructed the private investigator to buy the device, according to the police report.

The police report said the device was given to Wynonna Judd who gave it to her ex-husband Arch Kelley, who allegedly placed the device on the vehicle.

When police talked with Kelley, he denied any involvement.

After confidential information about the Judds’ case was leaked to the media in November, Deputy Chief Mike Jordan was placed on suspension by police after other officers said he disclosed details from the incident.

Mark Cook contributed to this report.
