Autopsy Reveals No Foul Play in Cumberland River Death

An unidentified man found in the Cumberland River died with no signs of trauma.

An autopsy conducted on an unidentified man, whose body was discovered Sunday afternoon in the Cumberland River, revealed no signs of foul play or trauma, authorities announced today. The findings have led investigators to continue their efforts to identify the deceased, who is believed to be in his 30s and possibly of Hispanic descent.

The man was found wearing black jeans, a gray undershirt, a maroon overshirt, one Puma tennis shoe, and was accessorized with a white watch and a white necklace. A distinctive tattoo resembling a tiger or panther was noted on his right bicep, which could be a key detail in helping to identify him.

In an effort to ascertain the man’s identity, his fingerprints have been forwarded to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI). Authorities are urging anyone with information that could assist in the identification process to come forward.

The absence of trauma or foul play in the autopsy report has shifted the focus of the investigation towards identifying the deceased and understanding the circumstances leading to his presence in the Cumberland River. The investigation is ongoing, and further details will be released as they become available.
