KNOXVILLE (AP) — A Tennessee woman says she made a grisly discovery while hunting for Easter eggs in her back yard with her 3-year-old son – a dead body.
Tara Hanouskova said she had noticed a foul smell but didn't find the source until Wednesday, when she noticed tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck while hunting for eggs with her son.
Her son didn’t notice the man's body and police investigated discreetly.
Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk told media outlets the man had been dead about two weeks. The autopsy found the man suffered from a medical condition that could have led to his death.
The death will be listed as natural causes unless something different is found in the final autopsy report, DeBusk said.
