KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) – Kingsport Police Department officers began investigating an unattended death Thursday night, officials with the department say.
According to Tom Patton, public information officer with the Kingsport Police Department, officers were dispatched to Brook Street around 8 p.m. Thursday night for an unattended death investigation.
Patton said the investigation is still in its preliminary stages and that no determination of foul play could be made yet.
A local resident told News Channel 11 that she has seen strange things in her neighborhood, but Thursday night’s scene was different.
“We see people walking down the street all the time,” Amanda Wright said. “Homeless, not homeless. It’s just East Sevier. I’m sorry to say that, but there is some weird things that go on around here, but never, never a dead body. Never.”
This is a developing story. Details will be updated as they become available.
