The Kingsport Department says it will not release the name of the man whose body was found Monday morning near I-26 at John B. Dennis Highway.
Officers found the 28-year-old man’s body in a field next to the intersection.
Investigators are treating the case as a homicide – since all deaths outside a medical facility are treated as such unless proven otherwise.
Base on preliminary results, no foul play is suspected at this time.
An autopsy has been ordered and detectives hope those results will determine the man’s cause of death.
