A joint investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the White County Sheriff’s Department and the office of the 13th District Attorney General has resulted in the arrest of a Minnesota college student on a murder charge. At the request of 13th District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway, TBI agents joined deputies and district attorney investigators in investigating the death of 50-year-old Timothy Jordi, who was found deceased at a home in Sparta. Earlier that day, county dispatchers received a request to check on the welfare of Timothy Jordi, after he failed to show up at work. Deputies responded to the victim’s Washington Street home and found him deceased. An autopsy determined Timothy Jordi was the victim of a homicide. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that indicated the victim’s son, Joshua Jordi, a college student at Minnesota State University, was the individual responsible for his father’s death. Yesterday, investigators served 21-year-old Joshua Nathaniel Jordi with a warrant, charging him with one count of first-degree murder. Jordi was arrested and booked into the Blue Earth County Jail in Mankato, Minnesota where he awaits extradition to Tennessee. Jordi’s bond was set at $1.5 million.
