MADISONVILLE-The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) is still looking into the case of a body that was found in the water at Kefauver Park early Sunday afternoon.

TBI had first told The Advocate & Democrat it was the body of a woman, but confirmed Monday it was the body of 19-year-old Zachary Tyler Wilson. TBI said there are no obvious signs of foul play, however a complete autopsy will determine the cause of death.

Madisonville Police Department Officer Gerald Summey said it was around 1:20 p.m. Sunday when he was sent to the park after a father and son reported seeing a body in the water.

The father told Summey he and his son were looking for a spot to fish when the son saw what looked like a body in the water. The father said he walked to the edge of the water and saw that it was indeed a body and called 911.

According to Wilson's Facebook page, he had gone to school in Memphis, but his residence at the time of his death was listed as Englewood. | 337-7101
