Decomposing Body Recovered Tuesday Afternoon from Seven Mile Creek in South Nashville



South Precinct detectives are working with the Medical Examiner’s Office to identify the decomposing body of a man recovered this afternoon from Seven Mile Creek near the Harding Place Bridge. The victim, who may have drowned in flooding during late March, was pinned against a tree and was mostly covered by brush, wood and other debris in the creek. Office of Emergency Management personnel recovered the body, which was discovered by a fisherman. There were no visible signs of foul play associated with the death. An autopsy is pending.

The victim was approximately 6 feet tall. His race could not be determined. He had a large chest tattoo with the words “Good Times” over an image of a mask smoking a cigarette. Anyone knowing an individual with that tattoo is asked to contact South Precinct Investigations at 615-862-7763.
