August 14th 2006, The Jellico Motel, Tennessee, received a call to reception from an unknown male, telling them “they might wanna check” a specific room. That was where they discovered the brutally beaten body of Chastity Ray Scalf. She was 8 months pregnant at the time.
Chastity was found in what appeared to be (and is claimed to be, by authorities) a suicide situation. But certain aspects of the case suggest that this was a case of something much more sinister..
Chastity had been stomped on so viciously that purple bruising in the shape of a shoe print was found on her back. Her family believe she was beaten and then strangled before the scene was staged to look like a suicide. This is supported by the autopsy conclusion that it was in fact a homicide.
And what about the man who made the call, what was his part in all this? Murderer? Accomplice? Innocent?
However, the City of Jellico promptly ruled it a suicide, without conducting an investigation. Chastity’s death was promptly swept under the carpet like it never happened. (Google it, you’ll see what I mean)
There have been unconfirmed claims (rumours) that Chastity had been having an affair with the Mayor of Jellico who became paranoid that she was going to tell his wife (and possibly ruin his career and reputation) so he had her murdered and covered it up.
The majority of people in Jellico were unaware a death had even taken place at the motel, let alone a murder. (or alleged suicide)
It almost as if it never happened.
And that’s why Chastity’s daughter (who was merely a young child at the time of her mother and unborn brothers deaths) and family are fighting for Chastity Ray Scalf’s death to be known, her story to be heard and justice to be served. #justiceforchas
“So I’ve tried to be happy about the Jellico Motel opening up but I just can’t pretend to be anymore. August 14th 2006 my mom Chastity Ray Scalf was brutally murdered in that motel while she was 8 months pregnant with my brother. She was stomped so hard in the back that there were purple Bruises in the shape of a shoe on her back. Then she was strangled and after her and my little brother took their last breath it was made to look like a suicide. Then the man then proceeds to call the office of Jellico Motel and tell them they “might wanna check the room” then leaves and is no where to be found. The autopsy came back and it was ruled a homicide however the city of Jellico didn’t even look into the case they left it cold. So while all you people are enjoying your time there at Jellico motel all I think about is that day. She gets no memorials anywhere, her case is left as a cold case, no head stone, and the city of Jellico acts like it never happened. She doesn’t even get to see granddaughter. As for the city of Jellico I hope you all get what you deserve. #justiceforchas“Facebook post
