Detectives have requested an autopsy be performed on a 58-year-old man whose body was discovered by a neighbor. Sheriff Robert Arnold says it was found Wednesday morning in a dry creek bed off Panther Creek Road, just off Midland Road in south Rutherford County. Investigative Services Division Commander Preble Acton says all unattended deaths are thoroughly investigated. She adds they have no reason to suspect foul play at this time. The man's name isn't being released yet until his next of kin are notified. Acton says the deceased man had not been seen or heard from in at least a couple days. The body was found in a dry creek bed that runs between his property at 7444 Panther Creek Road and that of the neighbor who discovered the body and called the sheriff's office around 9am Wednesday morning.
