Body discovered at I-26 overlook

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is en route to Unicoi County to assist in an investigation into the death of a man discovered Friday morning at an overlook along Interstate 26.
Reporters with The Erwin Record are on the scene now and can confirm that the body of man was found by a traveler who stopped at the scenic overlook. That person called 911, and the Unicoi County Sheriff’s Department began the investigation.
The overlook, near Mile Marker 53, has been shut down to the public while the investigation continues.
