MCSO Criminal Investigators responded to the scene to investigate. The preliminary findings were that Mr. Pulley began an unprovoked attack on his mother, Mrs. Bearden, with a weapon. Mrs. Bearden suffered injuries to her head and back from the attack. Mr. Bearden attempted to defend his wife by restraining Mr. Pulley.
