KCSO Badge, crossed crime scene tape, and "Human Remains Found"

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office received a call for possible human remains just after 5 pm on December 25, 2021, in East Knox County off of Andrew Johnson Highway.

KCSO’s Major Crimes Detectives, Forensic personnel, and the Knox County Medical Examiners office processed the scene and confirmed the remains to be human. However, it is unclear the age, gender, or when the individual passed away at this time.

Sheriff Tom Spangler says the remains were taken to the Regional Forensic Center for proper examination. Knox County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit will be leading the investigation which is in the preliminary stages.
