Description

A four-year-old child's Easter egg hunt in the US has ended with the discovery of a decomposing body lacking any identification under a family's deck. The body - which was found by a west Knoxvill mother - has still not been identified but police say it had been under the home for around two weeks. The woman told police she had noticed an unusual smell around her home for days and had several times tried to locate the source, even requesting a worker mowing her lawn to search for the origin of the odor. She was eventually able to locate the body at around 7.19pm during an Easter egg hunt when she checked in a space deep beneath her deck some 15 to 20 feet from the edge. Initial autopsy results indicate the man died from a medical condition but his identity and how he came to be beneath to deck is unknown. The man was not carrying identification and didn't have any scars or tattoos and the level of decomposition has prevented police from taking fingerprints in the field. He appears to be middle-aged, approximately 5'4" tall and weighs about 170 pounds. He also has brown hair and brown eyes and extensive dental work. Police also looked through missing persons reports to see if the body's description matched any in the database but none did.
