Scene 1-26-16South Precinct detectives are investigating the murder of a 53-year-old Nashville man whose body was discovered by a passing motorist at 8:50 this morning near a woodline at the intersection of Pebble Creek Drive and Edge-O-Lake Drive.

The victim, who carried identification in his pocket, had apparent non-gunshot trauma to his body.  It is not clear whether he was killed at that scene or perhaps elsewhere and dumped off the roadway.  The time of death has not been determined, but may have occurred during the overnight hours.  Detectives are now researching the man’s history and attempting to find relatives, friends and associates.
