MARION COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -- Local and state authorities are looking into the discovery Wednesday of a burned body found in a burned out camper off of Poe Road in Marion County.
Marion County Sheriff Ronnie "Bo" Burnett said officials believe they know the identity of the body, but are awaiting DNA test results from an examination in Nashville before they release a name.
The fire apparently happened Saturday or Sunday and the camper was burned down to its frame, Burnett said. The remains were only bones, he said.
Neighbors, who might be related to the victim, found the camper burned around 2:30 p.m. CDT Wednesday in a remote wooded area more than a mile from state Highway 27, he said. The person they believe could be the fire victim had not been seen since Saturday.
