UPDATE: Man accused of burglary found dead in home at center of crime in Bradley County
UPDATE: Court documents reveal new information about the man found dead inside a trailer in Bradley County.
Bradley County Detective Rob Wilson investigated the burglary at the victim's residence on Ramsey Bridge Road on November 27.
The victim told authorities that upon returning from work in Nashville, he noticed that his house was ransacked.
The victim believes that someone broke in through a rear window or the back door.
Two days after the first report, the victim notified deputies that he found a dead man hanging in the closest of his spare bedroom.
Patrol confirmed that the male was dead and, due to the level of decay, had been dead for some time.
A Bradley County detective sergeant spoke with the victim and his friend, who was helping him clean his house after the burglary.
His friend said that she had been staying next door at Sarah Clowers' dad's home. Clowers told her that she and a man who had been staying with them had broken into the trailer next door.
Clowers said she had not seen the man since the day of the burglary and the last time she saw him, he was wearing skinny jeans and a red and black shirt.
Clowers' descriptions matched the person found dead inside the trailer.
