UP THE VALLEY—A late Tuesday afternoon 911 call about a body in the lake has turned into a crime scene investigation.
At 4:52 p.m., Campbell County's 911 Center received a call from a fisherman about a body in the water at Miller's Bridge on Old Tenn. 63. Scanner traffic indicated a vehicle was also located at the scene.
The body was later identified as 38-year-old Darren Lee Morrison, 146 Stone Ridge Lane, LaFollette. It was unclear how long Morrison had been in the water.
The incident is being investigated as a crime. Morrison’s body has been sent to the University of Tennessee’s Regional Forensic Center for an autopsy.
