Hooten said that he went back to Willenborg’s apartment and saw that she was dead. He then returned to his girlfriend’s apartment, got his bag and left.
He told police during the interview that he was not intoxicated nor under the influence of drugs when he committed his assault on Willenborg.
He was then taken to the Michael L. Becher Adult Correctional Complex.
On Monday, Hooten agreed to return to the Clarksville Police Department for a second interview, at which time he reiterated to investigators his account of the crimes.
