Police in Kimball, Tenn., say a body found inside a car Wednesday in the parking lot at the Lowe’s Home Improvement store near Interstate 24 is that of a 27-year-old Indiana man.
Kimball Police Sgt. Chris Webb said this morning that a Lowe’s Home Improvement store employee spotted the body while taking a break around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
So far, police do not believe foul play was involved but the body has been sent to Nashville for an autopsy, Webb said. Authorities have not reached family members so they are withholding the man’s identity until they are notified.
Webb said store surveillance video shows the man arriving in a gold Dodge Stratus bearing Indiana plates around 5 a.m. Wednesday.
“Best we can tell he never got out of the car,” Webb said. He noted that no one else got out of the car or were around it after it was parked.
