(Nashville, TN) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says it’s found nude photos of a woman on a phone belonging to the former bodyguard for Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. This is evidence that investigators believe shows that Barry engaged in an affair with her former bodyguard, Sergeant Rob Forrest, while he was on duty.
The TBI has taken possession of the mayor’s phone, but the mayor and her lawyer are refusing to share the passcode to unlock it. An affidavit cites the nude images believed to be Barry were taken during the time that Forrest reported receiving overtime on out-of-town trips.
Investigators have uncovered 260 deleted chats between Forrest’s phone and Barry’s phone number as well as 35 deleted call logs. The TBI says it has probable cause to seek evidence they believe could prove a crime was committed.
Barry’s 22-year old son Max died of an overdose in July of 2017.
