BEECH CREEK, Tenn. (WJHL) – An offense report from the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office revealed that a trespassing complaint was filed last week by the mother of missing five-year-old Summer Wells.

According to the report, officers with the sheriff’s office responded to a call on Thursday regarding criminal trespassing at the Ben Hill Road residence where Summer disappeared from in June 2021.

Candus Wells, Summer’s mother, is listed on the report as the complainant, claiming that “a Molly Golightly and a male Andrew Griffin – both Facebook names – along with four other people came onto her property making videos of her residence.”

Wells stated on the report that the same incident occurred two days in a row. She was referred to “private prosecution” by police.

The report was filed Thursday, Dec. 9.

Our sisters station WJHL reached out to Marissa Zdazinski, a YouTube creator with an account called “Molly Golightly,” and was at the Wells property last week. No word has yet been heard.

Hawkins County Sheriff Ronnie Lawson told WJHL that the next step would be for the Wells to seek warrants for the arrest of those accused of trespassing.
