The Christian County Sheriff’s Department is investigating after the body of a man was found Sunday evening on Deason Lane.

A passerby called dispatch about 7:12 p.m. after seeing what appeared to be a body lying in a wood line on Deason about one-quarter mile from Antioch Road.

Christian County Deputy Coroner Zach Lamb was called to the scene soon after sheriff’s deputies arrived and pronounced the man dead at the scene.

A news release from Captain Chris Miller says it’s unclear how long the man had been deceased before he was located.

Investigators are working to identify the man and determine what led to his death. Lamb says an autopsy is scheduled for Monda at the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Anyone with information should contact the Christian County Sheriff’s Department at 270-890-1300.
