William Tyler had lived alone for many years in his small house at
the end of Knob Road in Monroe County, Tenn., and this was not the
first time his home had been burglarized. But one night, the phone
lines were cut and the shadowy figure outside his house was
undeterred by Tyler's warning. Tyler had no choice but to wait up
all night with his gun in hand. At day-light, he made his way to a
local grocer to call a friend, who agreed to meet him back at
Tyler's house. Upon returning to his house alone, Tyler found a
hatchet-wielding intruder in his home, who began to attack. Tyler
endured several blows to the head before he was able to escape,
retrieve his gun and fire a shot. Despite this, the intruder kept
coming, and it was only then that Tyler shot him. The intruder died
at the scene. "It appears to have all the ingredients of a
self-defense case," said Det. Sgt. Mike Morgan.
