News


(WBIR - North Knoxville) Knoxville police said a homeless man was found dead Thursday morning in a creek on Atlantic Avenue.

Darrell Debusk with KPD said the man's friend found him this morning and went into a business to call 911. The friend told investigators they had been drinking together Wednesday night.

It appears the man fell into the creek, but did not fall over the bridge, according to Debusk. He said no foul play is expected and there are homeless camps along the creek.

The man's name has yet to be released, but KPD said he is in his 40s.

The medical examiner is working to determine the cause of death.
