TENNESSEE, November 28, 2023 (Bee News Daily)—a South Tennessee father was arrested for attempted murder of his daughter.
According to an arrest report, the video also showed Floyd Allen Seay on top of his daughter as he struck her multiple times in the face. Seay is then seen getting up, going inside the home, coming out, walking up to his daughter with a kitchen knife and begin stabbing her repeatedly.
A witness at the scene told officers that Seay handed the knife to a neighbor after the stabbing and said, “I tried to kill her, but I couldn’t.” During a police interview, Seay allegedly told investigators that he intentionally got the knife but didn’t know why he grabbed it.
Metro police said officers detained the suspect — identified as 81-year-old Floyd Seay — until investigators arrived at the scene.
Upon arrival, officers found the victim suffering from stab wounds to her chest, lower neck and cheek. An arrest report states the victim was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she was stabilized with serious injuries.
Investigators reported they spoke to multiple witnesses who provided video of the incident, which allegedly showed Seay and his daughter engaging in a verbal argument that escalated to a physical fight.
