BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) is investigating after a 17-year-old teen was found dead at his home.

According to the release, SCSO officers responded to a home in the 100 Block of County Hill Road in Blountville. Upon arrival, police met with a family member that found Gavin Brown, 17, dead in the home.

News Channel 11 spoke with Javy Frazier, who said he was next door when the body was discovered and called 911.

“I never actually stepped foot in the trailer, but I was on the ramp up to the front door. And from that point, I could see, you know, I could see Gavin and so I ran straight down to my nana’s house,” said Frazier. “I told her to call the cops, told her what happened and actually ran outside, grabbed a separate phone. I called the cops too and gave the report.”

The SCSO urges anyone who recently spoke to Gavin or anyone that may have observed anything suspicious near the home to contact officials at (423) 279-7330.

“The circumstances lead us to believe that this is an isolated incident and that the public is not in any danger,” said Sheriff Jeff Cassidy.

The body was reported to be sent for an autopsy and the investigation remains ongoing.
