Chattanooga police investigate body at Lee Highway Bi-Lo

Chattanooga police said this afternoon that, although tests must be performed, they believe a man whose body was found outside the Bi-Lo in Ooltewah died of natural causes.

The body of a white male was found this afternoon in a pickup truck around to the side of the grocery store, police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary said. She said he was believed to have been dead about two days.

Police had discovered the man's identity but did not immediately release his name.

I'm sure the TFP reporter is on the way to call the widow for comment.

It's hard to believe that a person could lie dead in a grocery store parking lot for two days and not be noticed.

@Salsa and how do you think the media has the ability to obtain such information in the first place?
