A body was found this past Friday morning in a field off North Vine Street in nearby Winchester.
Winchester Police Chief Dennis Young confirmed that authorities believe the victim is Marc Castle, a suspect in a shooting that took place in January, just two blocks from where the body was found.
A man was using a rotary mower to cut brush when he ran over the skeletal remains.
MTSU's Forensic Anthropology Search and Recovery Team, led by Dr. Hugh Berryman, worked the crime scene. MTSU will be assisting the Nashville Medical Examiner's Office with identifying the remains. They are a group of trained MTSU students who help with crime scenes around the state under Dr. Berryman's supervision.
Castle was the suspect in a Jan. 21 shooting after police say he shot more than 20 rounds from an assault rifle on North High Street before fleeing the scene.
