LAKE TANSI, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Hunters found a decomposing body in a remote wooded area near Lake Tansi on Sunday, the Cumberland Co. Sheriff's Office announced.
After deputies secured the area, investigators from the sheriff's office and the TBI were called in. Officials are not saying whose remains were found. They body was sent to Nashville for autopsy and a positive identification by the State of Tennessee Medical Examiner.
UPDATE: Cumberland County Sheriff's believe they may know the identity of the man found in the woods but won't confirm any details until the autopsy comes back. They've been in contact with a family who reported a man in his mid twenties missing this past May. Neighbors in the area say they heard an argument between a boyfriend and girlfriend around the time the man was reported missing. Sheriffs hope to have the results of that autopsy later this week.
