A body was found in a vehicle parked at 1502 N. Main Ave., Erwin, late Monday evening.
The Erwin Police Department confirmed that officers found a deceased male in a vehicle after 11 p.m. on April 11.
EPD Chief Regan Tilson confirmed the discovery.
“The deceased has been transported to Quillen (ETSU Department of Pathology) for an autopsy,” Tilson told The Erwin Record on Tuesday afternoon. “Our preliminary investigation shows that the cause of death appeared to be natural, but we will know more once we have the autopsy results.”
Tilson said that the family has been notified.
“Our prayers go out to this family,” Tilson said.
The investigation is ongoing and The Erwin Record will update the story as more details become available.
