WSMV on Megan Barry Search Warrant: ‘Authorities Believe That Forrest Took Two Photos of a Nude Woman Who Is Believed to be Barry on His Police Department-Issued Cell Phone’

A judge has signed off on search warrants for the electronic equipment of Nashville Mayor Megan Barry and retired Metro Nashville Police Sgt. Rob Forrest. On January 31, Barry admitted that she had conducted a two-year-long extramarital affair with Forrest, who served as her bodyguard.

“Authorities believe that Forrest took two photos of a nude woman who is believed to be Barry on his police department-issued cell phone. He allegedly sent the pictures to himself to his MNPD email,” WSMV reported on Thursday.

“Police also found there could be deleted phone logs and hundreds of deleted chats between Forrest and Barry on at least one of the devices that were being searched,” WSMV noted, adding:

The warrants specifically asked for records from a silver Apple iPhone 6s Plus and two black Apple iPhone 7 Plus devices.

The warrants were approved on Feb. 16 by Criminal Court Judge Steve Dozier and were returned on Thursday to the Davidson County Criminal Court Clerk’s office.

“Within the search warrant, a special agent with the TBI mentions an email sent from Sgt. Forrest’s work email address that included a photo of a nude female lying on the bed with a black purse next to her,” WKRN reported.

That email was sent on May 15, 2017 and Mayor Barry was later photographed with what is believed the same black purse. Forrest’s police-issued cell phone was taken into possession by the TBI earlier this month.

The search warrants also revealed that during the first six months of her administration, Mayor Barry did not travel with security.

The Tennessean reported Thursday afternoon that “nude cell phone photos, deleted chats, may show evidence of crime.”

“I would refer all questions about the TBI investigation to the TBI or Mayor Barry’s attorney, Jerry Martin,” Mayor Barry’s spokesperson Sean Braisted told The Tennessee Star when asked to confirm or deny reports that Mayor Barry was the nude woman in the emailed photo and if she was reconsidering her decision not to resign.

    Hurry the criminal and ethics investigation along and spare us of the made for a TV mini series script. Don’t you think that The Lawyer ( Jerry Martin) will not allow Berry to resign because it is his last bargaining chip in settling this nasty case with prosecutors. The Body Guard can save his criminal assault by giving up his ex lover/ employer

    After watching her deer in the headlights meltdown on TV tonight, it’s apparent that she and her lawyer don’t understand that the target of an investigation does not direct investigators as to what can or can not be collected as evidence.

    Who, exactly, was the recipient of Forrest’s email with the nude pictures of Barry attached? Does Hustler magazine still publish “Beaver Hunt?” That’s one possible recipient as that particular feature didn’t have a low bar. Let’s hope Mayor Barry stays around a while longer. Nashville’s political class needed a good purge and all those fine folks who pushed this trainwreck on the city will get flushed with her after this gets bad enough…I mean “worse.” Here’s looking at you, Bredesen, Dean, Cooper, Purcell, Gentry, ad nauseum…

    If the phrase “disappointing, early morning, middle aged cemetery sex” doesn’t apply to your city’s mayor, are you even trying? As a Democrat, she can always claim she was speaking at a get out the vote rally.

    Step up your game, Memphis.

    She’s demanding that investigators pay no attention to any other texts or e-mails outside of the scope of her adulterous misappropriation of funds as she is refusing to provide a password for the device. And if the guy she was was shtupping for 2 years took a picture of her, then it’s an invasion of her privacy because she’s the real victim here.

    She’s making room under that bus for you Forrest. Better come clean.

    This is when the fun starts.

      You know the drill. The mayor doesn’t want people looking at private texts that relate to yoga classes, weddings, and the best sexual position to use atop a marble tomb.

        LNV: It got better. When she said she liked to go to the city cemetery to reflect on her dead son but he is not interred there.

        Nashville Libs may have no quarrel with her using her dead son in her alibi for seamy cemetery sex but others may.

        Every outlet is starting to get this is a real story with national implications except for the biggest mudslinging paper in town who is playing defense in their individual Twitter feeds. But…but…the governor of Missouri!

        Hey TBI, Barry demanding that you not look at anything outside of her adultery related crimes is what’s called a “red flag”. Do most subjects under investigation have the sack to dictate terms to you?

        1. LeavingNashVega

          Good Lord, I missed Mayor Barry claiming her cemetery trysts were to reflect on her dead son. Even for a story that had gone through the floor that’s low. Did Forrest attend these morning quickie memorials with her to honor the dead? Her opportunistic grief-mongering had become annoying and friends out-of-town but still in the local television viewing area already were ridiculing us over it, but that is beyond disgusting.

          She’s a sociopath.

    Told my wife a week ago….”It doesn’t get worse than this…” City employee/ boyfriend…..making over time while in Greece together…

    Well…it just got worse….nude pictures with date and time and GPS stamp…..on city issued iPhone…while he was on city overtime….

    Public picture of Mayor wearing similar black dress 4 hours latter..

    Boyfriend sent the nude pics to his city email……

    Mayor refusing to provide password to her phone…

    Yikes….

    They have hit the iceberg….time to abandon ship…

    This is not a partisan matter. This is a situation that speaks to judgement and Mayor Barry has demonstrated horribly poor decision making. It is now time to resign Mayor.

      Do NOT release the photos! Good lord why would anyone want to see that?! The scandal is hers, do not punish us! 👀👁🙈🙈🙈

    HAHA–still arrogant and smirky now mayoress? This should be the straw that breaks so to speak–she cant come back from this. How stupid and humliating. How dumb and arrogant were these two? EXTREMELY

    If he indeed attempted to take nude pictures of the mayor the search will be futile. No camera or phone could survive being exposed to her in the nude. Ugh!

    Top of Drudge this afternoon. Thanks.

    Salacious stories like this get the headlines but getting those texts and emails will rrveal the real Megan Barry.

    A mean spirited, cynical pol colluding with the pro-transit out of towners. Blind partisan. Capricious, high handed and entitled.

    Can’t wait. Deleting those emails will get you.
    She wasn’t Hillary Clinton yet.

    I have no desire to see the evidence.

    This also assumes misappropriation of a police helicopter to get an aerial photo.

  22. Floyd

    Scary that we have cops that dumb on our police force. I wonder what legal doublespeak Chief Anderson will use to try convince us that this is all legal, ethical and in no way criminal.

    1. Richard

      He will probably use senility as a defense and in court.
