Man found dead in Shelby County Sheriff’s Office vehicle


SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man was found dead in one of their vehicles.

The man was discovered Wednesday near the Hospitality Hub on Washington Avenue.

A spokesperson for the department described the vehicle as being “unoccupied.” It’s unclear how long the man was inside along with the manner of death.

Several people we talked to said at one point the man was not in a vehicle. One man said he saw the commotion.

“The guy was laying right down there in the middle of the street on his face,” the man said.

We asked SCSO for more details—such as the man’s age, if there were any injuries, how he got into the vehicle and why the vehicle was in that area—but we were told it’s an ongoing investigation, and they could not release specific details.
