The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help identifying a person who died in an apparent suicide.
The Sheriff’s Office responded to Bacon Springs Lane in Marlow, just north of Oak Ridge, at 3:52 p.m. Sunday.
A family had been walking in the area when they found a human skull, said Tyler Mayes, ACSO spokesperson and director of administrative services.
Detectives and deputies found the corpse just feet away from the skull, and they found evidence that indicates the person committed suicide, Mayes said.
The person has not yet been identified, Mayes said.
The ACSO is still investigating. If you have any information or know someone who is missing, you are asked to call ACSO Detective Sean Flynn or Detective Sergeant Josh Zisman at (865) 457-6210.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
