Franklin County officials closed Old Lawrenceburg Road for about two hours this morning to conduct a death investigation.
Sheriff Pat Melton said he received a call around 7:30 a.m. after someone spotted a body on the side of the road between the East-West Connector and U.S. 127.
Emergency dispatch also received several calls about an empty vehicle, he said.
Deputies found a deceased white male when they arrived on the scene, Melton said. No foul play is suspected, he said.
The Franklin County coroner is also involved in the investigation.
