A family went out for and afternoon walk in the Bacon Springs Lane area near Clinton Sunday. At just before 4 pm they made a grisly discovery, they found a skull appearing to be that of a human.

Anderson County Sheriff’s investigators arrived at the scene and found the rest of the body nearby. Preliminary evidence indicates a possible suicide. The identity of the person has not been determined.

The Sheriff’s office is still investigating this matter. If you have any information about who this may be or know of someone whose whereabouts are unknown, please contact Detective Sean Flynn or Detective Sergeant Josh Zisman at 865-457-6210.
