A man was found dead inside of a parked pickup truck Sunday afternoon.
The discovery was made just before 3 p.m. behind the Ft. City Duck Pond on the 5000 block of N Broadway.
According to Knoxville Police, witnesses said they passed by the truck and noticed a man lying facedown in the floorboard. A passerby opened the door to check on the man inside the truck and then flagged down a fire truck.
The man appears to have been in his 40s. Police said the body showed no obvious wounds or trauma.
The body was taken to UT Medical Examiner's office.
